Motorcyclist airlifted to hospital after Lickey crash

Posted on August 20 2013 at 11:28:30

Police want to trace witnesses to a road collision in Lickey which led to a motorcyclist being airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.

It happened on Sunday (18 August) at 2.40pm in Old Birmingham Road and involved a Triumph motorcycle ridden by a man in his 20s from Redditch and a Skoda driven by a man in his 50s from Walsall.

The motorcyclist was flown by air ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at Birmingham with serious injuries. He was today said to be in a critical but stable condition in intensive care.

The driver of the car was not hurt.

PC Sian Norman of West Mercia Police said that there was other traffic at the scene when it happened. Some witnesses had been spoken to but not everyone who was there had been traced.

She said: “Given the seriousness of the injuries we are carrying out a thorough investigation and we want to hear from anyone who saw the collision or noticed the motorcycle or car involved immediately beforehand.

“In particular we would like to hear from the driver of a car which we understand was travelling behind the Skoda but did not stop at the scene. That person may well be able to help us build up a better picture of what happened.”

Anyone with information should call PC Norman at the Force Operations Support Team at Rubery Police Station on the non-emergency number 101, quoting the incident reference 416-S-180813.
