A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a cyclist, a man, who had been involved in a collision with a car. Upon assessment ambulance staff found he was in a serious condition and required advanced trauma care at the roadside before being conveyed by land ambulance on blue lights to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency care; the doctor travelled with the ambulance crew to continue treatment en route.”
