A motorcyclist has been seriously injured following a road traffic collision in Stourbridge last night (Saturday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on New Street, Wordsley at 7.20pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham, with a critical care paramedic on board, to the scene. The police and fire service were also in attendance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a motorbike and a car.

“The motorcyclist, a man believed to be in his 20s, was assessed by ambulance staff who quickly began treating him for a number of serious injuries.

“Due to the seriousness of injuries the man had suffered to his head, pelvis and legs, he was anaesthetised by a doctor and taken to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, by land ambulance.

“The hospital had been pre-alerted and medics were on standby awaiting the man’s arrival.

“Thankfully, the driver of the car remained uninjured in the incident.”
