“There had been three men in car at the time of the crash. The 23 year driver was complaining of back pain. He was taken to Warwick Hospital for further assessment and treatment.
“The other two, who were 20 and 34 were assessed at the scene but were discharged with advice.
“The man driving the 4×4 was uninjured.
“It is fortunate that there was no horse in the trailer as it could have been a very different incident.”
