A pedestrian and a motorcyclist have died following a collision in Shropshire this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received a call from North West Ambulance Service reporting a collision involving a pedestrian and a motorcyclist on the A525 Nantwich Road between Broughall and Whitchurch shortly before 3.30pm (Tuesday).
A community paramedic, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Strensham and Cosford were sent to the scene; one air ambulance had a MERIT trauma doctor on board.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a pedestrian and a motorcyclist who were both in cardiac arrest. Sadly, it quickly became apparent to ambulance staff that nothing could be done to save the pedestrian, a man, and he was confirmed dead on scene.
“Ambulance staff and the doctor administered advanced life support to the motorcyclist but despite their efforts he was unable to be saved.
“The road remains closed.”
