A motorbike passenger, who was one of two men to have suffered serious injuries, has been airlifted to hospital following a collision between a motorbike and a car this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Beaconsfield Drive in Stoke on Trent, shortly after 9.45am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a BASICS doctor and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they discovered two patients who were riding on the motorbike at the time of the collision.

“The pillion passenger, a man believed to be in his 20s, had suffered a serious head injury in the collision and was suffering from a reduced level of consciousness.

“In order to stabilise his condition, the man was anaesthetised at the scene before being airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital.

“Unfortunately, his condition is thought to be extremely serious.

“The driver, a man who is also thought to be in his 20s, had suffered a fractured elbow and fractures to both arms.

“He was immobilised and given pain relief at the scene before being taken to the same hospital by land ambulance.

“The man driving the car was uninjured in the incident.”
