Two men needed trauma care by ambulance staff and two doctors last night after they were involved in a collision on the Birmingham and Warwickshire border.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of the Minworth Road and Water Orton Lane in Water Orton shortly after 10.00pm last night (Monday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and a Critical Care Car from The Air Ambulance Service attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival ambulance staff found a car which had collided with a tree. On the same stretch of road, a motorcyclist had also come off his bike.

“The driver of the car, a man in his 20s, sustained multiple serious injuries in the collision with the tree and required advanced trauma care at the roadside to help stabilise his condition. The man was taken by land ambulance, on blue lights, to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further trauma care. The critical care doctor travelled with the ambulance crew to continue treatment en route.

“The motorcyclist, a man in his 30s, suffered a serious leg injury. He was given pain relief before he was fully immobilised and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.”
