A cyclist has suffered potentially life changing injuries after a collision with a vehicle.

The incident happened on the Oldbury Ringway near to the Mecca Bingo at about 1.25pm on Monday.

Two ambulances and the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Care Car were initially sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The critical care paramedic arrived within five minutes of the 999 call and immediately requested an air ambulance due to the serous nature of the case.  The Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford was immediately sent.

“The middle-aged man had suffered serious injuries.  He was assessed and treated at the scene before being taken by land ambulance to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctor and critical care paramedic from the aircraft travelled with the crew.

“There was no other vehicle or patients at the scene.”
