A man received major trauma care at the roadside by ambulance staff last night following a road traffic collision.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a motorcyclist who had collided with a lamppost at the junction of Queens Road and Roanne Ringway in Nuneaton, Warwickshire just before 11.50pm (Monday). An ambulance, a community paramedic, a paramedic officer and a critical care car from The Air Ambulance Service attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist on the floor. Upon assessment the motorcyclist, a man believed to be in his 20s, was in a critical condition and had sustained significant injuries to his leg which required immediate advanced trauma care.
“The team of ambulance staff and medics worked quickly to help administer vital care to the man at the scene before he was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. Medics in A&E were pre-alerted to the arrival of the man who was said to be in a critical condition.”
