A man has died in a road traffic collision in Stourport-on-Severn this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a crash between a van and a motorcycle on the A451 near to the recycling centre in Stourport-on-Severn at around 4.00pm (Saturday). An ambulance, a responder paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a motorcycle and a van which had been involved in a significant collision.
“Sadly, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the motorcyclist, a man, and he was confirmed dead on scene.
“The driver of the van, a man in his 40s, sustained a suspected hip injury. Crews and the doctor administered pain relief to the man and immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board before he was taken by land ambulance to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.”
