A woman has been airlifted to one of the region’s major trauma centres following a collision between a motorbike and a car this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Baneberry Drive in Featherstone at 7.55am and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a woman lying next to her motorbike on a grass verge and a car with significant damage to its side.

“The woman, who is believed to be in her 30s, remained fully conscious throughout and was treated for a serious leg injury and cuts to her arm.

“She was given pain relief at the scene and carefully moved on to the awaiting air ambulance, which had landed in a nearby field, before being airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“The driver of the car, a man, and a male bus driver who witnessed the incident were both treated for the effects of shock before being discharged at the scene.”
