A motorcyclist has received trauma care at the scene of a road traffic collision in which he suffered serious injuries this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision between a motorbike and a car on Meaford Drive in Blurton, Stoke-on-Trent, shortly after 3.45pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and two BASICS doctors to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two patients, both who had been travelling on the motorbike.
“The man riding the bike, who is believed to be in his late teens, was found on the other side of the car and in a serious condition.
“Crews immediately began advanced trauma care in order to stabilise the man’s condition and immobilised him before he was transported to Royal Stoke University Hospital. The hospital had been pre-alerted to the man’s condition prior to his arrival.
“The second patient, also a teenager, who was a pillion passenger, was assessed and treated for minor injuries before also being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital.
“The driver of the car, a man, was uninjured in the incident.”
