Fatal crash in Bilton

A biker's died and a pensioner's seriously injured after a crash in Bilton.

Here's the statement from Warwickshire Police:

"Shortly before 10.15 this morning (Tuesday 28 May), a collision took place between a pedestrian, a Honda motorcycle and a white Citreon C3 on Bilton Road.

The motorcyclist, an 18-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to hospital where he sadly later died.

The pedestrian, a woman in her eighties, also sustained serious injuries and remains in hospital at this time.

The Citreon driver was not injured.

Road closures were in place whilst emergency services were in attendance.

Investigating officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision. If you have any information, please call Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 88 of 28 May 2019."

This is what West Midlands Ambulance have sent us:

 "Crews arrived to find a motorcyclist, pedestrian and a car that had been involved in a collision. The motorcyclist, a man, was being given excellent first aid by off duty nurses who stopped to assist. Upon assessment by ambulance staff it was found that the man had sustained serious injuries and was in a critical condition. The team worked together to administer advanced life support to the man on scene and en route to hospital via air ambulance. Sadly, despite the best efforts of everyone, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

"The pedestrian, a woman, sustained potentially life-threatening injuries and received trauma care from ambulance staff before being taken by land ambulance on blue lights to the same hospital for further emergency care."
