A MOTORCYCLIST  has been anaesthetised at the scene of an accident in Coventry.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Radford Road and Bede Road at about 2.50pm on this afternoon.

An ambulance, a paramedic officer initially responded but they requested the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance due to the severity of the rider’s injuries.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Exactly what happened was not clear but the rider was found a short distance from the bike he had been on.

The man, thought to be in his 20s had suffered very serious chest and facial injuries.  Ambulance staff and the doctor from the aircraft carried out a number of procedures at the scene to stabilise his condition.

“He was then anaesthetised, immobilised and had a pelvic binder put in place before being taken on blue lights by land ambulance to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire; the doctor travelled with the ambulance.

“There were no other injuries.”
