A TEENAGE biker who wasn’t wearing protective clothing avoided serious injuries after a crash in Pershore.

The 18-year-old collided with a car at the junction of Cooks Hill and the B4084 in Wick at 2.10pm on Monday (May 5), and had come to rest in a hedge 50 metres further down the road from the incident.

West Midlands Ambulance Service assessed him and found he had sustained a broken ankle, a suspected fracture to his

lower leg and gravel rash to his back.

The man was given pain relief before being immobilised and airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

The driver of the car was shaken but uninjured.
