A motorcyclist has suffered life threatening injuries in a collision involving a car in Kings Norton this afternoon (Tuesday 9th January).
Police are appealing for witnesses of the accident – which happened on the A441 Redditch Road close to the junction with Granshaw Close just before 3.30pm – to contact them.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman confirmed that the man was given advanced trauma care on scene after suffering “multiple serious injuries”.
She said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist, a man, being cared for by off duty nurses and passers-by. The man had sustained multiple serious injuries which required the medics and ambulance staff to work closely as a team to administer advanced trauma care quickly to help stabilise his condition.
“Once the team were happy the man could be moved, he was fully immobilised and taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. A doctor travelled with the patient to continue assessment en route.”
Anyone who witnessed the accident or who has any information is asked to contact West Midlands Police on 101 and quote log number 1346 of 09/01/2018.
As of 4.50pm, Redditch Road is closed in both directions between Foyle Road and The Green island (except for some access) and is expected to remain closed for several hours.
Our thoughts are with all those affected.
Updates will be provided as available.
