A man has sadly died after an RTC in Whitchurch this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision involving a motorbike and a car on the A49 near Prees Heath Common Nature Reserve in Prees Heath at 1.38pm.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival, crews discovered the motorcyclist, a man, in a critical condition.

“Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support but sadly, despite everyone’s best efforts, it became apparent that he could not be saved and was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver of the car, a woman, was cut free from the vehicle with the assistance of fire colleagues before being assessed by medics.

“She was treated for potentially serious injuries before being airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further treatment.

“A third patient, the female passenger of the car, was treated by ambulance staff for injuries not believed to be serious before being conveyed by land ambulance to the same hospital for further treatment.”
