A motorcyclist has died following a road traffic collision in Stoke-on-Trent this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received several 999 calls at 10.51am reporting a collision involving a motorcyclist and a lorry at the junction of Chemical Lane and the A527 in Tunstall. A non-emergency ambulance came across the incident and stopped to render aid whilst an ambulance, two paramedic officers and a BASICS emergency doctor responded to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Bystanders had already commenced first aid when the non-emergency ambulance crew arrived on scene.
“The motorcyclist, a man, was in a critical condition and the crew began administering advanced life support on scene before being joined by ambulance colleagues. The team worked together to continue resuscitation efforts at the roadside but, sadly, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later at the scene.”
