A motorcyclist received advanced trauma care from the ambulance service this morning following a collision involving a car in Dudley.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Halesowen Road in Netherton at 7.15am this morning (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic attended along with a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic in a response car from the air ambulance base in Cosford.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The motorcyclist, a 24-year-old man, had been in collision with a car. When the emergency services arrived the man was being given excellent first aid by an off duty nurse, staff from a local factory and passers-by.

“With serious injuries, the man received the very best advanced trauma care at the roadside by the team of ambulance staff before being taken on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctor and critical care paramedic travelled in the ambulance to continue treatment en route. Upon arrival in A&E, the man’s condition was described as critical.”
