Cyclist’s helmet averts more serious injury

Sunday 1st December 2013 – 8pm – Chris Kowalik.

A cyclist has his helmet to thank for not being more seriously injured in a collision with a car.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Meer End Road, Honiley in Warwickshire shortly before 2.55pm today.

A paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance crew and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The cyclist had pains to his chest, collarbone and knee. He also had bruising to his legs and had chipped his front teeth. However, it is recognised had it not been for the helmet he was wearing, he would have had far more serious injuries.

“He was taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire by land ambulance.”
