Despite the best efforts of ambulance staff last night, they were unable to save the life of a motorcyclist on the M54.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of an RTC involving a car and a motorcyclist on the eastbound carriageway of the M54 between junctions 3 and 2 shortly after 11.00pm last night (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and two senior paramedic officers responded to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist, a man, in cardiac arrest. The team worked quickly to administer advanced life support on scene but sadly nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later.
“The car driver was assessed but didn’t require hospital treatment.”
