A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find a car on its side on the embankment of the motorway.
“The driver of the car, a man in his early 20’s, was treated at the scene for spinal pain. The man was fully immobilised and conveyed to University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire.
