A teenage cyclist has been airlifted to hospital after being involved in a collision with a car in Penkridge.
He was riding along the Wolverhampton road at 8.20am this morning (June 26) when the crash happened.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a 14-year-old boy that had been in a serious collision with a car while riding his bike.
“The boy had suffered serious leg and suspected pelvic injuries. He received emergency treatment at the scene including the application of leg and pelvic splints. The boy also suffered a minor head injury. His condition was stabilised and he was airlifted to Birmingham Childrens Hospital for further emergency treatment.”
“Considering the damage to the car and bike, the boy was lucky not to have suffered more serious or even fatal injuries.”
The driver of the car was checked at the scene but did not require hospital treatment.
