A man who fell from his bike at a motocross event this afternoon was hit by three other bikes as he reached the floor.

The rider, thought to be in his 20s, suffered injuries to his head, face and shoulders and was airlifted to one of the region’s major trauma centres as a result.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a motocross track near to Wilden Top Road in Stourport shortly after 2pm and sent an ambulance, a rapid response paramedic and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were told the man had temporarily lost consciousness prior to their arrival.

“Once on scene they began treating him for his multiple injuries which he sustained in a nasty fall that saw him collide with three other competitors.

“He was then airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham which had been pre-alerted to his condition before his arrival.”
