Motorcyclists Warned To Wear Protective Leathers Despite The Heat!

Motorcyclists Warned To Wear Protective Leathers Despite The Heat!

Ambulance bosses are warning motorcyclists to continue to wear leathers despite the hot temperatures after a rider was left with horrific injuries after a crash in Coventry.

The 39 year old rider crashed on the A45 Coventry to Rugby road near the Henry VIII School playing fields.

An ambulance and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene after a number of 999 emergency calls at 5.50am on Tuesday morning.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "On arrival, crews found a man who had suffered a very serious chest injury after he collided with the central reservation.  He had a multitude of other lacerations and had been knocked unconscious for a period.

"The crew immediately immobilised the man using a neck collar and spinal board and treated his injuries before taking him on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

"Although he has a very serious injury, it does not look like it will be life threatening.

"Unfortunately, the man was not wearing ‘leathers'.  Whilst we understand it is very hot, wearing such protective equipment is vital in reducing the level of injuries should a motorcyclist crash.

"A good set of leathers, safety helmet and high visibility clothing go a long way to minimising injury."
