Two cyclists have been injured, one seriously, after they were involved in a collision with a car.

The incident, which happened at around 8.45pm on Wednesday evening, happened outside New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton and left the two bicycles completely destroyed and the car on its side on the pavement.

An ambulance was on scene in six minutes and was backed up by a second ambulance, a paramedic officer and the MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival the man and woman cyclists were found some distance from their bikes.

“The driver of the car was not seen by ambulance staff.”
