A man in Worcester started his morning on a bike and ended it by being airlifted to a major trauma centre today.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a motorcyclist at the junction of the A422 and B4092 in Inkberrow at around 9.45am earlier today. Two ambulances, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham and two local community first responders were on scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a 69-year-old man who had come off his motorbike. Upon assessment ambulance staff found he had sustained a serious arm injury and a suspected fracture to his leg. He was given pain relief to help stabilise his condition before he was immobilised and his leg splinted to minimise further movement.
“The man was then airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, a major trauma centre, for further emergency treatment.”
