Two people suffered serious injuries when the motorbike they were travelling on was involved in a collision with a car on the outskirts of Wolverhampton this morning (Sunday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on the junction of the A454 and Rudge Heath Road in Upper Ludstone shortly before 10.40am.

Two ambulances, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham and a paramedic support officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were called to reports of a collision between a car and a motorbike.

“Two people were treated at the scene, both of whom were travelling on the motorbike.

“The first patient, a man in his 60s, suffered fractures to his left arm and left leg as well as pelvic injuries. He was fully immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board and after being given pain relief he was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, a major trauma centre.

“The second patient, a lady in her 60s, suffered a suspected fracture to her left arm and knee injuries. She was also given pain relief and fully immobilised before being taken to New Cross Hospital by land ambulance.

“There were no other injuries sustained in the collision.”
