A moped rider has died following a road traffic collision in Tipton last night.
An ambulance crew at a nursing home on High Street in Princes End heard a collision and found a moped rider lying in the road outside at 7.47pm (Monday). Quickly realising the severity of the incident, the crew requested back up from two further ambulances, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The first ambulance crew commenced resuscitation efforts on the male, who was in a critical condition, whilst ambulance colleagues responded to the scene.
“Once on scene, the team of ambulance staff and MERIT worked together to administer advanced life support to the patient. Sadly, despite their very best efforts, nothing could be done to save the moped rider and he was confirmed deceased a short time later.”
