Motorcyclist escapes serious injury

A BIKER became wedged under the front axle of a road sweeper after a road accident at Bramshall.
The motorcyclist escaped serious injuries despite coming off his bike and ending up stuck under the vehicle.
The incident happened just after a bend outside some agricultural buildings on Stone Road in Bramshall, Staffordshire at about 8.30am on Thursday 1st June.
A rapid response vehicle was on scene within seven minutes of the 999 call and was backed up by an ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found the 45-year-old man under the front of the road sweeper.
“Fortunately, it had been sweeping at the time and was moving at a slow speed and was able to stop rapidly.  The motorbike was in a hedge at the side of the road.
“Firefighters used airbags to lift the road sweeper to allow ambulance staff access to the man.
“The man was complaining of abdominal pain, a thigh injury and had injuries to both arms.
“He was given pain relief before being airlifted to the major trauma centre at Royal Stoke University Hospital as a precaution.”
