The air ambulance service’s Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) attended four separate motorcycle incidents in Northamptonshire over the weekend.

On Friday afternoon a 30-year-old man was airlifted to hospital following a collision with a car in Duston.

He sustained serious injuries after the car had impacted into him, which caused the car to roll over onto a verge.

Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) was called to the incident at around 2:27pm and landed at the scene 16 minutes later.

A spokesman for WNAA said: “On the crew’s arrival, the patient was complaining of head, face and chest injuries. He was anaesthetised and required surgical intervention at the scene.

“He was then carefully immobilised before being airlifted to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire. The crew landed at the hospital at approximately 3.28pm.”

The driver of the car was treated by a crew from East Midlands Ambulance Service.

On Saturday morning, WNAA’s sister service, Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA), flew to Corby after a 47-year-old man fell of his bike.

The incident happened to the south of the town centre. DLRAA received the call at 9.25am and landed at the scene 16 minutes later.

A spokesman for DLRAA said: “The patient was treated for head and pelvic injuries. He was immobilised and given pain relief before being airlifted to the same hospital.”

Later that morning, the same crew treated another 47-year-old man who fell on the A508.

The crew landed at the scene shortly after 11am. The patient was treated for leg, pelvic, head and chest injuries before being airlifted to the same hospital.

WNAA were also called to a motocross incident near Long Buckby on Sunday after a 44-year-old man was injured after falling off his bike.

The crew arrived at 1.47pm, 10 minutes after leaving their base at Coventry Airport. The patient was complaining of leg and back pain.

A spokesman for WNAA said: “He was given advanced pain relief and immobilised before being airlifted to the same hospital.”

The current condition of all patients is unknown.
