A motorcyclist has been taken to hospital after being injured in a road traffic collision in South Staffordshire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A460 just before the M54 junction shortly before 10.45am this morning (Thursday). An ambulance, two responder paramedics and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The road traffic collision involved a car and a motorcycle. The motorcyclist, a man believed to be in his 40s, sustained a nasty fracture to his leg as well as injuries to his arm.

“Crews and the medic worked to stabilise his condition on scene by administering pain relief and drugs before he was immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and traction leg splint. The man was then taken by land ambulance to New Cross Hospital.

“No one else was injured in the collision.”
