The 40-year-old rider was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham after he was struck by a car turning off Bentley Road North into Anson Way, at about 4.10pm on Wednesday.

The driver remained at the scene and is helping police with their enquiries.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance Critical Care Car and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found the rider some distance from the collision. Both the bike and car had been damaged.

“The rider, a man in his 40s had suffered multiple serious injuries.

"He was assessed and treated at the scene before being taken on blue lights by land ambulance to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham; the doctor and critical care paramedic from the aircraft travelled with the ambulance crew.

“A woman in her 60s who was the front seat passenger in the car was assessed at the scene but was discharged after treatment. The driver was unhurt.”

Sgt Dean Caswell from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "We’re keen to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and has not already spoken to officers.

"We would also ask anyone with dashcam footage to get in touch as we continue with our investigations."
