Rider ends up 100 yards from motorbike after narrowly missing a tree

Wednesday 20th April 2016 – 10.02am – Murray MacGregor.

A motorcyclist has had a number of lucky escapes after a crash last night.

After the collision with a roundabout, the rider firstly survived ending up about 100 yards away from his bike; secondly he had landed on a grass verge reducing the impact; and finally, narrowly missed a tree as he slid along the grass.

The incident happened at the junction of the A452 Collector Road and Moorend Avenue in the Castle Bromwich area of Birmingham at around 8.40pm last night.

A paramedic area support officer was first on scene and was backed up by an ambulance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find the rider a considerable distance from his bike.

“The 22 year old was initially reported as being unconscious but he had come round when crews arrived, though he was not fully conscious and appeared quite confused.

“Amazingly, he had no obvious injuries but due to his confusion, crews suspected some sort of head injury. As a precaution he was immobilised before being taken on blue lights to Heartlands Hospital.

“The fact that he appears to have escaped serious injury is all the more fortunate given both wheels on his bike were buckled with the alloys broken.”
