A motorcyclist has died after a crash on the motorway near Wolverhampton last night.

The crash involved a car and a motorcycle on the eastbound carriageway of the M54 between junctions two and three shortly after 11pm on Wednesday.

A spokesman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "When ambulance staff arrived they found a motorcyclist, a man, in cardiac arrest.

"The team worked quickly to administer advanced life support on scene but sadly nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead a short time later.

“The car driver was assessed but didn’t require hospital treatment.”

A police investigation and carriageway clean-up was on-going until the early hours of this morning.

An ambulance, a paramedic officer, a MERIT trauma doctor and two senior paramedic officers were sent to the scene.
