A motorcyclist ended up underneath a car following a road traffic collision in Bilston last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Oxford Street, near to the Midland Pool and Snooker club, shortly before 10.55pm.
An ambulance, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer and the West Midlands CARE Team attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a motorcyclist underneath a car following a collision between the two vehicles. It is unclear whether the wheels of the car had gone over the man.
“In order for ambulance staff to assess and treat the man, the fire service worked quickly to move the car.
“Crews were then able to treat the man, believed to be in his 20s, for injuries to his abdomen and pelvis, as well as a fractured left arm.
“A pelvic splint was applied and he was fully immobilised. He was also given pain relief before being taken to New Cross Hospital for further treatment.
“The hospital had been pre-alerted to the man’s condition prior to his arrival.
“The driver of the car, a man, was uninjured in the incident.”
