Tuesday 26th April 2016 – 9.30am – Claire Brown.

Despite the best efforts of the ambulance service, a motorcyclist’s life couldn’t be saved last night following a collision with a car.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the Stratford Road in Wootton Wawen, Henley-in-Arden, shortly after 8.30pm (Monday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a doctor from the Warwicshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance responding in a car, attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff arrived to find a motorcycle which had been involved in a collision with a car. The motorcyclist, a man, was in traumatic cardiac arrest. The medic and ambulance staff worked as a team to deliver advanced life support on the man.

“Sadly, the motorcyclist couldn’t be revived and he was confirmed dead on scene.”

  1. My partner Dr Richard Burling (GP from Redditch) happened to be driving past last night and he was actually the first Doctor on the scene. He worked alongside a midwife until the paramedics arrived and then continued to perform CPR whilst paramedics were present. Watching him perform roadside CPR to a young man, who was killed XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX is something I will never ever forget. A total waste of life.

    1. Thank you for your comment Jen – it sounds like a horrendous situation. We have had to edit it slightly due to some of the comment which we feel could have legal implications. However, we felt that it was worth publishing your response. We hope you don’t mind.
