A man has died in a road traffic collision in Wolverhampton.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision involving a motorcyclist and a car on the Birmingham New Road in Coseley, near to Silver Jubilee Park shortly before 6.30pm earlier this evening (Tuesday). Two ambulance crews, two responder paramedics, a MERIT trauma doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a motorcyclist and a car which had been in collision. The motorcyclist, a man, suffered multiple serious injuries and was in cardiac arrest. An off duty nurse and other bystanders were doing CPR. Crews immediately took over resuscitation efforts at the roadside to administer advanced life support.
“The man was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with the doctor and paramedic continuing vital treatment en route. Sadly, despite best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on arrival at hospital.
“The driver of the car suffered cuts and bruises and was taken to Russells Hall Hospital as a precaution.”
