On arrival, ambulance staff found the rider, a man who was about 30 and from the Leominster area, lying on a grass verge.
The bike had front end damage while the car had damage to the right hand side.
The main concern for the rider was a head injury as he was not fully conscious. He also had facial and leg injuries.
After a full assessment at the scene, the crews decided to convey the rider to Hereford County Hospital.
His level of injury was undoubtedly less serious due to where he had landed.
The woman driving the car was shaken but otherwise unhurt and was discharged at scene.

That is why, in response to this operational review, we asked the Metropolitan Police to take forward their current investigation. We also created the first ever dedicated national response to missing children, located within the Ceop Command of the National Crime Agency.
Under the Government's missing children and adults strategy we have strengthened information-sharing processes in local areas, introduced new guidance on cases involving children who go missing from home or care, and police forces are directing resources to the cases that need them most.
It comes after an unpublished report said British police forces 'competed' against one another in the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance. It also said it had a long-term negative effect on the case.
Madeleine, from Rothley in Leicestershire, went missing from a holiday apartment in Praia de Luz in Portugal in 2007.
