A quad bike which collided with a wall in Birmingham in the early hours has left two men injured.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Cherry Orchard Road and Coopers Road in Handsworth at 1.50am (Wednesday). Two ambulances and a MERIT trauma doctor attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Two men in their 20s had reportedly been riding a quad bike when it collided with a wall. One man had sustained a loss of consciousness following the incident and ambulance staff suspected a head injury. He was given fluids and immobilised before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctor travelled in the ambulance to continue monitoring and treatment.

“The second man suffered shoulder pain and some cuts to his face. He was immobilised and taken to Sandwell Hospital for further checks.”
