A motorcyclist sadly died in a road traffic collision in Lichfield last night despite the best efforts of everyone at the scene.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call at 7.28pm reporting a collision involving a car and a motorcyclist at the junction of Grange Lane and Eastern Avenue, Lichfield (Wednesday). Two ambulances and a paramedic officer from nearby Lichfield hub were on scene within four minutes of the 999 call and were quickly joined by a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic as well as the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill with two further critical care paramedics on board.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived at the scene of the collision, they found bystanders performing excellent CPR on a man, the motorcyclist, who was in a critical condition.
“The team of ambulance staff quickly took over treatment and commenced advanced life support. Tragically, despite the very best efforts of WMAS and bystanders, they were unable to save the man’s life and he was confirmed deceased on scene a short time later.”
