Motorcyclist Anaesthetised - Sunday, 26th April 2015, 5:30pm
A motorcyclist has been anaethetised and airlifted to one of the region’s major trauma centres after suffering serious injuries following a collision with street furniture in Much Wenlock this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the B4368, near to Weston Junction, shortly after 3.15pm and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a man who had reportedly fallen from his motorbike before colliding with a road sign. The motorbike was found in a nearby hedge. An off duty nurse was already on scene and supported ambulance staff throughout.
“The man, believed to be in his 20s, was treated by ambulance staff for a serious head injury and a suspected fractured jaw. He was also treated for injuries to his face and chest and was suffering from a reduced level of consciousness.
“Due to the serious nature of his condition, he was anaesthetised and immobilised with the use of a pelvic splint and scoop stretcher.
“He was then airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further treatment.”
