A man has been seriously injured after the moped he was riding collided with a car in a Warwickshire village.
The incident happened on Snitterfield Lane in Snitterfield shortly before 9.45am this morning (Thursday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The moped rider, a man in his 30s, had sustained multiple injuries and was being cared for by locals when the emergency services arrived.
“Upon assessment, ambulance crews found he had sustained a head injury together with suspected fractures to his shoulder, pelvis and ankle. The man was given pain relief and intravenous drugs before being fully immobilised to stabilise his suspected fractures.
“The man was then airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, a regional trauma centre, for further treatment.
“The driver of the car, a woman, was uninjured in the crash.”
