Sunday 20th March 2016 – 4.55pm MOTOCROSS RIDER INJURED
The Midlands Air Ambulance team in Staffordshire was quickly on hand at a motocross event where a rider fell from his bike.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called shortly before 10.50am today to an event at Trent Raceway in Needwood, near the Midlands Air Ambulance base at Tatenhill.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “It was so close to the airbase that it was quicker for the crew to attend initially by car.
“The rider, a man in his fifties, had injured his right shoulder. He was given pain relief by the air ambulance crew. They were then joined by the helicopter which flew him to Royal Derby Hospital.”
