The Air Ambulance is called to an average of one motorbike accident every week

A motorcyclist was airlifted to hospital on Saturday with serious injuries following a collision with another bike in Pailton.

The 44-year-old woman sustained a fractured arm and chest injuries after being struck by a motorbike coming the other way.

Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance was sent to the incident, receiving the call at approximately 10.43am. They landed on the road where the incident happened ten minutes later.

At the scene, the patient was given advanced pain relief before being immobilised and airlifted to University Hospital, Coventry for further treatment. Her condition was stable upon handover to hospital staff.

On average, the air ambulance rescues an injured motorcyclist every week. Each rescue mission costs approximately £1,700 and is funded solely by public donations.

The charity is calling upon as many motorcyclists as possible to raise money by entering the ‘Rescue Ride In’, which will see hundreds of motorcyclists ride together from three different locations into the Brackley Festival of Motorcycling on August 17.
