A moped rider has died after he came off his bike in Staffordshire this afternoon.
The incident happened on the A34 at Aston, just south of Stone at around 4.00pm.
An off duty paramedic came across the incident shortly after it happened and stopped to provide treatment. She was backed up by two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When the off duty paramedic arrived, she started CPR on the rider who was in cardiac arrest.
“Advanced life support was carried out on the rider but, unfortunately, despite the best efforts of everyone treating the man, nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
