A TEENAGE motorcyclist has suffered potentially serious head injuries after a crash involving a people carrier this morning (Tuesday).

The incident happened at 7.40am at the junction of Ansty Road and Hall Lane in Coventry, located closely to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

An ambulance, paramedic area support officer and a doctor from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

The motorcyclist was complaining of back and leg pain – he has since been immobilised, given pain relief and taken the short distance to hospital.

The driver of the people carrier, a man in his 60s, was uninjured.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found a silver people carrier that had significant damage to the nearside – there was about 6 inches of intrusion.

“The motorbike had also suffered considerable damage.”
