Motorcyclist escapes with broken leg following Alcester 4x4 vehicle collision

Stratford Editorial 21st Nov, 2016   0

AMBULANCE staff say a motorcyclist who suffered serious leg injuries could have been in a far more serious state had he not been wearing full ‘leathers’.

Crews arrived to find a 36-year-old motorcyclist who had come off his bike and suffered a badly broken left leg following a collision with a Volvo 4×4 vehicle.

The incident happened shortly before 8am on Monday (November 21) morning outside the Alcester Sewerage Works on the Alcester Bypass.

An ambulance was first on the scene and was backed up by a paramedic area support officer and the critical care car from the Air Ambulance Service.




The man driving the Volvo was unhurt.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokesman said: “Fortunately the rider’s leathers had saved him from other potentially serious injuries.


“After receiving pain relief, ambulance staff had to straighten it and then splint it.

“After his condition was stabilised, he was taken on blue lights to the Major Trauma Centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.”
