An elderly man ended his bicycle ride last night in the back of an air ambulance after a collision with a car in Malvern.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Sherrards Green Road and Pickersleigh Road in Great Malvern just before 5.30pm (Thursday). An ambulance, a responder paramedic, a paramedic area support officer, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The elderly man had been riding his push bike when he was in collision with a car. When ambulance staff arrived they were told by passers-by he had suffered no loss of consciousness.
“Upon assessment, the man was found with a chest injury which required treatment at the roadside by the doctor and ambulance staff. He was also given oxygen therapy and once stabilised the man was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, a major trauma centre, for further treatment.”
