A motorcycle rider and pillion passenger have been taken to hospital after coming off their machine on the Silkin Way near Brookside, Telford.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the Silkin Way, just off Aqueduct Road at 10.50pm last night.
Two ambulances and the MERIT team, which included a trauma doctor, attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were alerted to a motorcycle incident on a stretch of the Silkin Way at just before 11pm.
“It appears the motorcycle collided with a pole on the trackway.
“A male rider in his twenties received treatment for chest and facial injuries. He was conveyed by land ambulance to the Royal Stoke University Hospital.
“Medics also treated a teenage pillion passenger for a fractured wrist and she was taken to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
