A BIKER suffered multiple injuries after he and his passenger were thrown 25metres over a car in a crash near Stratford.

Emergency services were called to Birmingham Road in Pathlow near to Arden Hill Farm around 8.25pm on Friday (September 18).

The rider – a man in his 20s – was found to be in an extremely serious condition and was anaesthetised at the scene as a result of his injuries.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The man was treated for injuries to his head, chest, abdomen, pelvis and neck.

“The doctor took the decision to anaesthetise him in an attempt to stabilise his condition.

“He was then taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire but unfortunately his injuries are thought to be extremely serious.

“His passenger, a woman in her 20s, was fully conscious when crews arrived, undoubtedly helped by the fact she was wearing a helmet.

“It had taken a huge impact in the crash and had a very large crack, saving her from a serious head injury.

“She was treated for injuries to her right arm and right shoulder, and given pain relief before being taken to the same hospital.”

The car meanwhile had suffered damage to its side and the driver – a woman in her 20s – was treated for minor bruising and shock before being discharged at the scene.
