A MOTORCYCLIST has been airlifted to the trauma centre at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital after his bike hit a lamp post on the Hartelbury Trading Estate this morning.

The incident happened at 7.40am on Worcester Road.

A number of passers-by including off-duty nurses and a firefighter came to the man’s aid before an ambulance and then the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford arrived.

The rider, who was in his 30s, suffered some nasty injuries in the collision.

Paramedics worked with the helicopter crew to give him pain relief before manipulating the injuries and applying splints.

He was then flown to hospital.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Whilst the man suffered serious injuries, the crews remarked that the fact he was wearing full biker leathers and a helmet reduced the level of injuries.”
