A motorcyclist has suffered serious injuries after a road traffic collision in Stoke-on-Trent this morning.
It happened on Bucknall Road at around 6.30am.
Four ambulances, two BASICS emergency doctors and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a car that had suffered significant damage to the driver’s door and a badly damaged motorcycle.
“The man riding the motorcycle had suffered serious injuries. He was treated at the scene by ambulance staff and the doctors before being taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital.
“Firefighters removed the car door so that ambulance staff could help the woman driving out of the vehicle.
“She was treated at the scene for less serious injuries before being taken to the same hospital.”
