Monday 6th June 2016 – 10.40am – Claire Brown.

A teenage boy riding a mini motorbike received nasty injuries after colliding with a car late last night in Birmingham.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Tessall Lane in Longbridge just after 11.00pm (Sunday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The teenage boy had been involved in a significant collision with a car; the windscreen was smashed.

“Upon assessment by ambulance staff, the boy was found with nasty leg injuries as well as gravel rash to his arms, shoulder and back.

“His wounds were treated and he was given pain relief before he was immobilised and taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“Whilst it was reassuring that that boy was protected with a helmet, his other injuries could’ve been minimised if he’d been wearing suitable protective clothing such as leathers or kevlar, boots and gloves.”
