Two people were taken to hospital after a collision outside Stevenage FC’s football ground yesterday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to Broadhall Way at about 2.10pm, following reports of a collision involving a silver Vauxhall Corsa and two pedestrians.

Personnel were joined by members of St John Ambulance and an off-duty doctor who had been at the nearby Lamex Stadium ahead of Stevenage’s first league match of the season against Notts County.

Two patients were assessed and treated at the scene, before being taken to Lister Hospital for further care.

One of them, a 24-year-old woman, had a facial injury, while the other – a man – received treatment for an arm injury.
