A motor accident in Birmingham has left two bikers seriously injured and one pedestrian dead.
The accident, which involved a motorcycle colliding with a pedestrian, has been described as ‘horrific’ and resulted in a pedestrian suffering a cardiac arrest immediately after the crash. The man, who was in his forties, was later declared dead at the scene despite attempts from paramedics to resuscitate him.
The two remaining casualties in their twenties were the motor bikers who were treated at the scene for serious and multiple injuries and were described as being in ‘critical condition’.
They were given anaesthetic on the roadside as well as spinal boards and neck collars to immobilise them before they were rushed to a hospital in Edgbaston.
It was confirmed later by West Midlands Ambulance Service that the pedestrian had died and that nothing could be done, he added: “Two men had come off the motorcycle they were riding and both were in a critical condition suffering significant multiple injuries. “Crews and the medics split up into two teams to provide treatment to both casualties.
Medics travelled in the ambulance with the two injured riders while the hospital was getting prepared for their arrival. There is now a police investigation into the accident and they are calling for anyone who has information about the incident to contact them.
