A TEENAGE cyclist has been airlifted to hospital after a serious collision with two cars in Worcester.

The incident happened at the junction of Tolladine Road and Holly Mount Road at about 10.30am this morning (November 13) when the 16-year-old cyclist collided with a Peugeot and Nissan.

The cyclist was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with head injuries where she is in a stable condition and remains in hospital for observation.

An ambulance, paramedic support officer and a rapid response vehicle together with two Midlands Air Ambulances from Strensham and Cosford attended the scene.

The road was closed for a time to allow Police to gather evidence from the scene.

Officers are in the early stages of the investigation to establish what happened.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews responded to a collision between a car and cyclist near Worcester this morning.

“A female cyclist, believed to be sixteen years old was found to have a low level of consciousness at the scene and she was treated by ambulance medics for serious head injuries.

“The patient was immobilised using a neck collar and placed on a spinal board. She was anaesthetised by a doctor at the scene before being airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham for further assessment and treatment.

“The hospital was alerted to the serious condition of the patient.

“The car driver was assessed by ambulance staff but did not require hospital treatment.”

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident should call the police on 101, or alternatively information can be given anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
