A woman has been extremely fortunate following a crash in Stratford Upon Avon this morning.
The crash occurred on the A3400, just outside Bearley, at around 8.50am. An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had overturned along a stretch of road that had on-going road works.
“The woman driving the car, believed to be in her 30’s, was ejected from the vehicle and was found on the road. She had suffered serious arm injuries in the crash including severe soft tissue loss. The woman received emergency treatment at the scene including pain relief.
“She was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar and airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment.
“The hospital had been pre alerted to the woman’s arrival and her serious injuries.
“Considering the nature of the crash and the fact the woman was ejected from her car onto the road, she was extremely fortunate not to have suffered more serious or even fatal injuries.”
