Lucky Escape in Warwickshire RTC 29-08-13

Thursday 29th August 2013 – 5.15pm – Claire Brown.

Despite a van ending up on its side, facing the wrong way on a dual carriageway, its two occupants have escaped with only minor injuries near Warwick this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A46, Hampton-on-the-Hill, shortly after 3.30pm earlier today (Thursday). Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a van, pointing the wrong way on its side, and a lorry which had been involved in a collision.

“Fortunately, the two occupants from the van, men in their 20s and 30s, suffered no serious injuries. Crews assessed the men at the roadside, treating a few minor injuries, before discharging them from care at the scene as they didn’t require further hospital treatment.

“The driver of the lorry was uninjured.”
