A WOMAN had to be air-lifted to hospital after the bike she was on collided with a car in Bromsgrove, leaving her trapped under the vehicle this afternoon (Sunday).
The incident happened at around 5.30pm in Regents Park Road.
The woman, who was in her 20s and was a pillion on the bike, sustained multiple serious injuries and had to be taken to the trauma centre at Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital for emergency treatment.
Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board were sent to the scene.
As ambulance crews worked with the doctor to carry out emergency treatment, the fire service worked to get her out.
She was given pain relief and was then flown to hospital after being immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board.
A West Midlands Ambulance spokeswoman said: "Due to her serious condition, the doctor decided to anaesthetise her on scene."
She added medics at the hospital were pre-alerted to the woman's arrival.
The motorcycle rider suffered a shoulder injury and was taken to Redditch's Alexandra hospital and the driver of a car was treated for shock. He was also taken to the Alex as a precaution.
