A motorcyclist has been treated at the roadside by ambulance staff after suffering a fractured leg following a collision with a car in Solihull.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Warwick Road and Grange Road shortly before 10.30am this morning (Thursday). An ambulance, a community paramedic and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The man had reportedly been knocked off his bike following the collision with a car. The biker, a 20-year-old, was assessed by ambulance staff and was found to have sustained a fractured leg and a suspected pelvic injury.
“The man was given pain relief to stabilise his condition before the ambulance staff carefully immobilised him onto a spinal board and neck collar. His leg and pelvis were also splinted. The man was then taken to Heartlands Hospital.
“The driver and passenger in the car, an elderly couple, were assessed by ambulance staff but were uninjured and didn’t require treatment.”
