Despite the best efforts of ambulance staff at the scene of a road traffic collision last night, a cyclist sadly died.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a road traffic collision involving a car and a cyclist on Wenlock Road in Shrewsbury shortly after 9.00pm yesterday (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic officer and a community first responder were responded to the scene. An off-duty paramedic, who came across the incident, stopped to render aid.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff arrived to find a cyclist, a man, in cardiac arrest who was already being given CPR by those on scene. The team quickly took over emergency treatment and continued advanced life support at the scene. Sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later.”
