A man has sustained serious injuries after the motorcycle he was riding collided with stationary cars in Oldbury this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Peel Way in Tividale at around 10.30am (Sunday). An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a man, believed to be in his 30s, who had sustained a significant laceration to his head, back pain and a nasty fracture to his right leg.
“It is believed the man had been riding a motorcycle when it collided with two stationary cars.
“Crews administered pain relief to the man to make him more comfortable before they immobilised him with a neck collar, spinal board and leg splint and dressed his head wound. The man was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further treatment.
“No one else was injured in the collision.”
