A motorcyclist has been airlifted to a major trauma centre with critical injuries after a crash with a car.

It happened near the junction of School Road and Chilton Road in the Yardley Wood area of Birmingham at about 6.10pm on Wednesday evening.

Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a motorcyclist who had suffered multiple serious injuries.  He was being cared for by a nurse form a nearby care home.

“The man was treated at the scene by ambulance staff, but as his condition worsened he was anaesthetised by the doctor from the helicopter before being airlifted to the major trauma centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“No-one else was injured in the crash.”
