Two cyclists have received treatment for head injuries and been taken to hospital after they collided this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Mouse Hill and Foundry Lane in Pelsall, Walsall, shortly before 3.45pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were told that the two men had initially been knocked unconscious in the collision.

“On arrival of ambulance staff they were both conscious, although at a reduced level.

“Both patients were treated for a head injury, one of whom was in a more serious condition than the other.

“He was transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham by land ambulance with the doctor from the air ambulance accompanying him en-route to continue treatment on the way to the hospital.

“The second man was transported to Walsall Manor Hospital, also by land ambulance.”
