Fatal motorcycle collision in East Staffordshire

A motorcyclist has died after a collision with a car in East Staffordshire.

It happened at the junction of Claymills Road and the A5121 at Stretton to the north of Burton. 

The first ambulance arrived on scene within three minutes of the initial call at just before 7.55pm on Monday evening. A second ambulance, a paramedic area support officer, a critical paramedic, a BASICS Emergency Doctor and the MERIT Trauma Doctor were all sent to the scene. 

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The crash happened on what is effectively a slip road onto the northbound A38. 

“When crews arrived they found a car with severe damage on the driver’s side. Members of the public were carrying out resuscitation on the motorcyclist. 

“Ambulance staff immediately took over and performed advanced life support but sadly the man’s injuries were too severe and it was not possible to save him. He was confirmed dead at the scene. 

“The 27 year old car driver was uninjured.”
