Police are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist was injured in a crash in Lichfield. A motorcyclist, aged in his 20s and from the Walsall area, came off his bike on the northbound carriageway of the A38, close to Swinfen Island, at around 7.35am this morning (April 17). He was airlifted to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with serious head and leg injuries. A section of the northbound carriageway remains closed while officers carry out examinations at the scene. It is not believed any other vehicles were involved in the collision but officers want to speak to anyone who witnessed it or saw the man, who was riding a black and blue Honda motorbike, prior to it. Anybody with information should ring Sergeant Darren Burney at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 93 of 17 April.
