Two other people were also injured during the crash which happened at around 1.30pm at the junction with Windmill Hill Lane near Chesterton.

Two ambulances and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a red car with significant front nearside damage, two motorbikes that had suffered huge damage and a light blue Peugeot with minor damage.

“One of the riders, a man in his 50s, had suffered multiple serious injuries. He was immobilised, had splints applied and was given pain relief before being airlifted to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The second rider, who was also in his 50s, was immobilised as a precaution and taken to Warwick Hospital, though he appeared uninjured.

“The woman in the red car, who was believed to be in her 70s, had a fractured wrist and seatbelt pain. She was also taken to Warwick Hospital.

“The man in the Peugeot was uninjured.

“The road was closed in both directions to allow emergency services to work at the scene safely.”
