A MOTORCYCLIST has escaped serious injury after landing on a grass verge following a collision with a car yesterday.

The collision happened at about 4.10pm at the junction of the A4112 and the road to the Kinnersley Arms.

An ambulance initially responded but the crew requested a helicopter and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Stensham was also dispatched.

In a statement, a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found the rider, a man who was about 30 and from the Leominster area, lying on a grass verge.

“The bike had front end damage while the car had damage to the right hand side.

“The main concern for the rider was a head injury as he was not fully conscious. He also had facial and leg injuries."

After a full assessment at the scene, crews decided to convey the rider to Hereford County Hospital in a land ambulance.

The statement added this his level of injury was undoubtedly less serious due to where he had landed.

The woman driving the car was shaken but otherwise unhurt and was discharged at scene.
