A motorcyclist has died, and a pedestrian is in a serious condition following a road traffic collision in Rugby this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Main Street in Bilton, Rugby at 10.12am today (Tuesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a BASICS emergency doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a motorcyclist, pedestrian and a car that had been involved in a collision. The motorcyclist, a man, was being given excellent first aid by off duty nurses who stopped to assist. Upon assessment by ambulance staff it was found that the man had sustained serious injuries and was in a critical condition. The team worked together to administer advanced life support to the man on scene and en route to hospital via air ambulance. Sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.
“The pedestrian, a woman, sustained potentially life-threatening injuries and received trauma care from ambulance staff before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to the same hospital for further emergency care.”
