A motorcyclist has died after a collision with a car.
The crash happened on Cannock Road in the Chase Terrace area of Burntwood at about 5.45pm on Wednesday afternoon.
Two community first responders from the Burntwood scheme were sent along with an ambulance.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The rider was initially conscious and talking to staff as they assessed his condition.
“He was immobilised and had a pelvic binder put in place and was en-route to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham by ambulance when his condition deteriorated rapidly and he suffered a cardiac arrest.
“The crew diverted to the nearest emergency department at Walsall Manor Hospital whilst resuscitating the patient.
“The MERIT Trauma doctor was sent to the hospital in preparation to transfer the patient to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, but sadly, his condition did not improve and he passed away at hospital yesterday evening.”
