A man has escaped serious injury after his car rolled over and ended up in a field in Shropshire.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a car which had gone through a fence and into a field near to Lutwyche Hall in Wenlock Edge shortly before 4.00pm this afternoon (Saturday). An ambulance, a responder paramedic and an area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews found a car, in a field, which had sustained significant damage conducive of it rolling over several times. The driver, a man in his 40s, was trapped inside the vehicle due to the damage caused.
“Upon assessment, ambulance crews found the man had suffered a head injury but no other obvious injuries. Crews worked with the fire service at the scene to carefully extricate him from vehicle and, due to the nature of the collision, they immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board as a precaution.
“The man was conveyed to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for further assessment and treatment.”
