MOTORCYCLIST INJURED Saturday 26th September 2015 – 7.00pm
A motorcyclist has suffered a badly broken leg after being found almost 10 metres from where his bike was in collision with a car.
The crash happened close to Burntwood Rugby Club in Chasetown, Staffordshire at about 11.30am this morning (Saturday)
The bike had suffered significant damage as had the car, which had front end and passenger side damage.
Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When the original ambulance crew arrived they found a man who had a badly broken right leg.
“Fortunately, the 33 year old had been wearing full leathers and a crash helmet which had reduced other injuries given how far he ended up from his bike.
“The ambulance crew immobilised the rider and applied a splint to his leg. He was then taken by land ambulance to Walsall Manor Hospital.
“The woman in her 60s who was driving the car was very shaken by what had happened. However, after treatment, she recovered enough not to need hospital treatment.”
