A motorcyclist who collided with a car in Warwickshire last night couldn’t be saved by the ambulance service despite best efforts.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A423 Oxford Road in Princethorpe at around 9.15pm yesterday evening (Saturday). A local community first responder was first on scene and was joined by two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “An off duty community first responder (CFR) came across the RTC involving the motorcyclist and car and was first on scene to help. The motorcycle had travelled another 100 metres down the A423 following the impact.
“The motorcyclist, a man, had sustained multiple traumatic injuries and was in cardiac arrest. The CFR quickly commenced CPR on the man whilst other ambulance staff made their way to the scene. Resuscitation efforts continued with the CFR, ambulance crews and doctor working as a team to deliver extensive advanced life support at the roadside.
“Sadly, after more than 40 minutes of resuscitation, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.
“The driver and passenger in the car, a man and a little boy, were assessed by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment.”
