A man has sadly died, and a boy has suffered serious injuries after the motorcycle they were riding collided with a lorry last night in Warwickshire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Purley Chase Lane, near the quarry, in Mancetter shortly after 7.30pm last night (Monday).  Three ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill and a medic from East Midlands Ambulance Service responded to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a motorcycle which had collided with a lorry. The motorcyclist, a man, was in cardiac arrest and was already being given CPR by police officers.  Ambulance staff took over resuscitation and commenced advanced life support at the scene. Sadly, despite their best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later.

“The pillion passenger, a boy, sustained serious leg injuries and was given trauma care by ambulance staff before being taken by land ambulance to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further emergency treatment.”
