A motorcyclist has suffered potentially serious head injuries after a crash involving a people carrier.

It happened this morning at about 7.40am at the junction of Ansty Road and Hall Lane in Coventry, not far from University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the doctor from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, who responded in a response vehicle, were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a silver people carrier that had significant damage to the nearside; there was about 6 inches of intrusion.  The motorbike had also suffered considerable damage.

“The rider, an 18 year old man, had suffered a potentially nasty head injury and was also complaining of back and leg pain.

“He was immobilised, given pain relief and taken the short distance to hospital.

“The driver of the people carrier, a man of about 60, was uninjured.”
