Friday 27th May 2016 – 3.45pm BIKER GIVEN TRAUMA CARE FOLLOWING SHREWSBURY COLLISION
A motorcyclist who ended up colliding with a trailer this afternoon in Shrewsbury needed trauma care by the ambulance service.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the B5067, near to the war memorial in Leaton just outside Shrewsbury at 1.15pm (Friday). An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found an off-duty colleague administering aid to the motorcyclist, an 18-year-old man, who had come off his bike after colliding with a trailer being pulled by a 4x4.
“Due to the condition of the biker, ambulance staff and the doctor administered advanced trauma care at the scene. Once the man was in a more stable condition, he was then airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
