A man has died following a road traffic collision in Staffordshire today.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on Manor Road in Madeley at approximately 4.35pm today.
An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a senior ambulance officer, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were dispatched to the scene. The police and the fire service were also in attendance.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews were called to reports of a collision between a car and a motorbike.
“On arrival at the scene crews found a motorcyclist, a man, who had been seriously injured. Advanced life support techniques were immediately carried out. Unfortunately despite best efforts nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased at the scene.”
Had a call this evening at 7pm from a grown man in tears and rightly so as he was the bearer of bad news I’m afraid
Still can’t quite believe it now even though its had a few hours to sink in but very sadly Pete Tindall passed away earlier this afternoon after being involved in a road traffic accident on his motorcycle on Manor Rd in Madeley
Pete lived life to the full and was Vale through and through and I’m damned sure if he could have chosen a way to go it would have been on his beloved bike, but just not now.
As often is the case, he’s been taken from us way too soon, he had everything to live for, his partner Lisa, he was an expectant father and Vale had just been promoted – good times indeed, all taken away in an instant.
So so cruel
We miss you Pete, Godbless X
Our thoughts are with his family and we of course, his friends
From his Vale family
Apologies but I’d also like to pass on my sincere thanks to all those who tried in vain to save Pete. You do a fantastic job which must be very traumatic and stressful.
