Motorcyclist dies in Atherstone RTC

Friday 6th July 2018 – 9.30am – Claire Brown.

Despite the best efforts of ambulance staff yesterday, a motorcyclist sadly died following an RTC in Atherstone.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Nuneaton Road in Mancetter, Atherstone, shortly after 4.30pm yesterday (Thursday).  An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a doctor on board were responded to the scene. One of the Trust’s Patient Transport Services (PTS) crews were passing the incident and stopped to render aid to assist emergency colleagues.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a motorcyclist, a man, who was in critical condition following a collision with a car. Whilst ambulance staff began administering trauma care to the man, his condition worsened, and he went into cardiac arrest. The team of medics quickly worked together to administer advanced life support at the roadside. Unfortunately, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
