A motorcyclist has died and a woman is seriously injured after a crash in Coventry this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 6:38am (Thursday) to reports of a road traffic collision involving a motorcycle on Barkers Butts Lane near the level crossing. Four ambulances, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car with a doctor on board and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “When crews arrived, they found a man, who was the motorcyclist, in a critical condition with bystander CPR already in progress.

“Staff continued in administering basic life support on scene, but sadly, despite the best efforts nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The woman, who is believed to have been the pillion passenger on the bike, was treated on scene for serious injuries before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on blue lights and sirens for further treatment.  The critical care paramedic and doctor from the Critical Care Car continued treatment on route.”
