Upon assessment by ambulance staff, the pedestrian, a man in his 60s, was found to have sustained significant and potentially life-changing injuries which required advanced trauma care at the scene. The emergency team worked to administer pain relief before treating and stabilising his serious injuries. The man was then fully immobilised before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency care.

“The motorcyclist, a man in his 20s, suffered a number of abrasions to his body. He was given pain relief to ease his discomfort before ambulance staff dressed his wounds. The man was then taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further checks.

“West Mercia Police are appealing for witnesses who saw what happened to come forward by calling 101, quoting 518S of 23rd July.”
