A motorcyclist has been airlifted to hospital in a critical condition after a crash with a car.

The collision happened at about 5.45pm on the A49 in Shropshire at the junction for Grinshill, to the north of Shrewsbury.

Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the MERIT trauma doctor in the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The rider was found some distance from his bike and the car.

“On arrival, the crews found a man, who was estimated to be in his 20s, who had suffered very significant injuries; CPR was being carried out at the scene by other motorists.

“The man was resuscitated and his condition stabilised before he was airlifted to the Major Trauma Centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“On arrival, his condition was said to be critical, but the quick actions of other motorists have given him the best possible chance of survival.”
