A motorcyclist has been taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres with a significant chest injury following a collision with a car in Bromsgrove this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Kidderminster Road and Perryfields Road at 5.10pm and sent an ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a male motorcyclist who had come off his bike following a collision with a car. The bike had suffered significant damage in the incident.

“Following assessment, the man, believed to be in his 30s, was treated for a serious chest injury and also given assistance with his breathing. He was then taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, by land ambulance, for further treatment. Thankfully, his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

“Due to the location of the incident, it was deemed quicker to travel by road than air.

“The driver of the car, a man, was assessed and discharged at scene.”
