A motorcyclist had to be airlifted to hospital following a collision with a fence. He was riding his motor trike at the time and sustained serious injuries as a result of the impact.
Due to the location and severity of the accident, the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) was utilised and landed on the roadside nearby. Air ambulance crews tended to the 57 year old man by giving him intravenous fluids, keeping his airways clear and administering a neck collar. He was then airlifted to the General Hospital to receive further treatment for head and spinal injuries.
qa Shocking statistics reveal that the WNAA and its sister service the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) rescue over two motorcyclists every week. The air ambulance service is a vital resource for injured motorcyclists and it is funded by public donations which cost approximately £1,700 per rescue.
There will be a charity event called the ‘Rescue Ride In’ where motorcyclists can help raise money for this invaluable emergency service by riding together from three locations in the local area.
