A MOTORCYCLIST suffered serious injuries to his chest and body after a crash in Wythall on Sunday (May 27) involving a van.
The man, in his late 40s, was taken to Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital after the incident, which saw him thrown from his bike on the Alcester Road about 5.15pm.
West Midlands Ambulance Service sent a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the trust's CARE team to the scene where the motorcyclist was given treatment before being driven to the hospital, where a trauma team was on standby.
A spokesman for the ambulance service said: "Fortunately, the man was wearing full leather protective clothing and an appropriate crash helmet which undoubtedly helped him survive the crash."
