A MAN has been seriously injured following a motorbike crash in Kings Norton this afternoon (Tuesday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the junction of Redditch Road and Granshaw Close at 3.30pm.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the West Midlands CARE Team medics and a MERIT trauma doctor and air crew from the Cosford Air base attended the scene by response car.

A man has been given advanced trauma care by ambulance staff this afternoon following the crash.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist, a man, being cared for by off duty nurses and passers-by.

“The man had sustained multiple serious injuries which required the medics and ambulance staff to work closely as a team to administer advanced trauma care quickly to help stabilise his condition.

“Once the team were happy the man could be moved, he was fully immobilised and taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

“A doctor travelled with the patient to continue assessment en route.”
