West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Wolverhampton Road, Oldbury, near to the Ramada Hotel, at 10.56pm and sent one ambulance and a rapid response paramedic to the scene. An off-duty student paramedic also stopped at the scene to help.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a man, believed to be in his 50s, who had been injured in collision with a car.
“He was treated for serious leg injuries as well as minor injuries to his head and chest.
“The man, who was conscious throughout his treatment, was given pain relief and immobilised with the use of a scoop stretcher and vacuum splint, before being taken on alert to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham.”
