A MOTORCYCLIST has died following a road traffic collision with a coach in Stratford.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Warwick Road, near to Stratford Manor Hotel, shortly after 2pm on Wednesday (November 18) and sent an ambulance and a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a man who is believed to have fallen from his motorbike and collided with a coach.

“He had suffered a serious head injury and was in cardiac arrest.

“Bystanders had already started CPR on the man before ambulance staff took over and continued advanced life support.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver of the coach, a man, was the only person on the vehicle. He was assessed and treated for the effects of shock before being discharged on scene.”
