Tuesday 19th August 2014 – 11.40am – John Hawker.
A biker has seen his investment in full leathers with body armour pay dividends after a serious RTC in Warwickshire this morning.
“The crash occurred on the A429, near Charelcote at around 8.30am. A rapid response vehicle, an ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a motorcycle and a pick-up style truck that had been in a significant collision. It appears once the motorcyclist had become separated from his bike that he had travelled a considerable distance along the ground.
“The man, believed to be in his 40’s, was treated for a shoulder injury and a dislocated knee and also received pain relief. The man’s knee was put back in place at the scene by medics and he was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.
“Due to the safety equipment worn by the man it appears to have saved him from suffering any gravel rash injuries and also undoubtedly helped to minimise other injuries. It was definitely money well spent.”
We have no further details on this incident.
