Thursday 3rd May 2018 – 5.00pm – Murray MacGregor.

A motorcyclist has been taken to a major trauma centre after coming off his bike on a dual carriageway and colliding with a lamppost.

The incident happened on the Wolverhampton Ring Road, just beside the Molineux football ground.

An ambulance and a non-emergency ambulance both came across the incident four minutes after the initial call at 1.20pm.  A paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford, with a trauma doctor and critical care paramedic on board, were also sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, the rider was found some distance from his motorcycle with his helmet off.

The man in his 30s had suffered serious injuries to his legs.  He was given pain relief, was immobilised and had both legs and pelvis splinted before being taken by land ambulance to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctor travelled with the patient.”
