A young motorcyclist has been airlifted with a badly broken leg after a collision with a car.

The incident happened at about 1.20pm, close to the bridge over the River Avon on the A46 in Evesham.

An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a car that had damage to the front offside quarter; the motorbike was on the opposite side of the road against the kerb.

“The rider, a 20 year old man had suffered a broken left leg.  He was immobilised, had his leg splinted and had a pelvic binder attached as a precaution before he was airlifted to the Major Trauma Centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The man driving the car was uninjured but shaken by the incident.”
