A road traffic collision involving a car and a motorcyclist has left one man dead this afternoon in Warwickshire.
The incident happened on the Birmingham Road in Henley-in-Arden shortly before 5.30pm (Saturday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When emergency services arrived they found a car and a motorcycle which had been involved in a significant collision. The motorcyclist, a man, was in cardiac arrest and passers-by were performing CPR on him.
“Ambulance staff and the medic continued resuscitation but sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
Me and my friend Angela were there when it happened. We ran to the car and made the 999 call. we want to let his family know me and 3 others were right by his side trying to do the best we could … We’re sorry for their lost…it’s been a traumatic and such a sad event
such a massive shock! he was a best friend aswell as being like a brother to me! can’t get my head around it still going to me missed by a lot of people! r.i.p bro xxxxx
I’m so sorry for your loss ! Is his family ok? Can i ask what his name was? Me and my friend were the first to call and ambulance and run to his aid. Im so sorry we did the best we could. It was absolutely awful to see and see such a person in that state x
his name was Thomas Edwards also known as eddy! his family are still in shock! it has been a massive shock to everyone as he was a well known a liked person!! he loved his motorbike and nothing would stop him riding it!!! just can’t believe he has gone!! r.i.p bro
How old was he if you don’t mind me asking. I can imagine what a shock it. Do you know if he was going home or had you spoke to him that day? If you could pass onto his fm silt that he wasn’t alone and me and my friend we’re right by his side and tried what we could and called the ambulance instantly and got them to come quick as they could. Did he live far from Henley ? I hope you are all ok and my thoughts are with you x
As you mentioned you were at the scene, the police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or who may have seen either vehicle beforehand to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 289 of 30th May.
I was also at the scene of this horrific accident. I truly feel for the loss that family and friends of Thomas Edwards will be feeling as any loss to a family is great but I saw Mr Edwards face when his helmet was removed and irrelevant (Sarah) what his age was, I saw a young man who has lost his life and his family and friends need to come to terms with what has happened and don’t need grilling on what and where Mr Edwards was or wasn’t going or doing. I was there also with my sister and I would like to pass on my condolences to Thomas’s family and friends for their loss at this very sad time. May he rest in peace.
I would like to pass on regards also to the driver of the car who Mr Edwards hit as he was in a bad way also, tho he seemed physically unhurt I am sure mentally that he will suffer for a long time, my thoughts are with him too.
Sarah he was 24! I really can’t get my head around it!! I’ve lost far to many people between Christmas and now!! this has absolutely destroyed me!! r.i.p bro xxxx
