Two teenagers have received trauma care by ambulance staff this lunchtime after the motorcycle they were riding collided with a car in Birmingham.

The incident happened on Horton Square, just off Belgrave Middleway near to Birmingham Central Mosque shortly after 1.00pm this afternoon (Wednesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a community paramedic and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulances responded to reports of two teenagers who had come off a motorbike following a collision with a car. When ambulance staff arrived on scene neither had a helmet on.

“The 15 and 16-year-olds both sustained head injuries. Ambulance staff and the doctor administered pain relief to help stabilise their conditions before both teens were immobilised with neck collars and spinal boards. The 15-year-old was taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital whilst the older teen went to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; both travelled on blue lights by land ambulance.

“The car driver was assessed but uninjured in the collision.”
