THREE motorcyclists have been injured, two of them seriously, following a collision with a car in Solihull today (Tuesday, November 5).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Damson Parkway in Solihull at 12.42pm.

Three ambulances, a paramedic officer, a BASICS doctor, the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Care Car and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the accident scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered three male motorcyclists who had all been injured following a collision with a car.




“One of them, who was in his 20s, had initially been trapped underneath the car. Ambulance staff assessed and monitored the man closely, whilst the fire service worked to free him.

“He was then treated for multiple serious injuries and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, by land ambulance. A Critical Care Paramedic from the Critical Care Car travelled with the man to continue treatment en route to hospital.


“A teenage male was also treated for multiple serious injuries and was taken to the same hospital by land ambulance, with the doctor from the air ambulance travelling with him to continue treatment.

“A second teenage male was treated for potentially serious injuries and taken to Heartlands Hospital, also by land ambulance.”
