An air ambulance was called to the scene of a 26-year-old woman who was left in a serious condition after she came off of a motorcycle in Frascati Way in Maidenhead this morning.
Margaret Carter, 26, from Cox Green, was travelling home from early-morning work in Sainsbury's, in Maidenhead, when the accident happened. She was riding a grey Honda motorbike.
Police at the scene at about 10.30am believe she may have skidded due to the damp conditions.
The air ambulance was forced to land in nearby Grenfell Park because of windy weather conditions and too many obstructions including bins and traffic cones.
An ambulance and three police cars were at the scene.
Margaret was conscious at the scene but has been left in a serious condition with neck injuries.
No other vehicle was involved in the accident.
Mum Pam Carter and brother Bill Carter, 28, also from Cox Green, were at the scene.
Bill, who lives with his mum, said: "She has never had a serious accident before."
Two members from the Royal Borough's traffic management team Andy Martin and Matt Hunt, helped police to cordon off the road.
Margaret has been taken by air ambulance to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
