Tuesday 25th February 2014 – 6.40am – Murray MacGregor.

A moped rider has suffered a nasty leg injury after a crash that left his bike in pieces.

The crash happened on Gervase Drive in Dudley at around 8.40pm on Monday evening.

An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the MERIT Trauma doctor were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, the ambulance staff found a bike that had suffered very significant damage after a collision with a tree.

“The rider was about 10 meters away from the bike when crews arrived and was disorientated.

“The man, in his 20s, had suffered a deep gash to his right thigh. After being assessed by the doctor at the scene and having his wound dressed, he was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where it was expected he might require surgery.
“The rider was not wearing ‘leathers’, which might have made a difference to level of injury to his leg.”
