A collision between a motorbike and a car left one man needing a flight in an air ambulance yesterday.

The incident happened outside Stonydelph Lane in Wilnecote, Tamworth at around 5.15pm (Tuesday). Two ambulances, a community paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The motorcyclist, a 26-year-old man, sustained serious leg injuries and pelvic pain in the collision. Ambulance staff administered pain relief to the man to help ease his discomfort before working to carefully immobilise his injuries. Once stable, the man was transferred by land ambulance to the awaiting helicopter, which had landed in a nearby school, before being airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The driver of the car, a 25-year-old woman, was out of the car upon the arrival of ambulance staff but was suffering with neck pain. She was given pain relief before being immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board and taken to Good Hope Hospital by land ambulance.”
