Thursday 5th December 2013 – 8.10am – John Hawker.
A man has died and two people have been seriously injured following an RTC in Coventry last night.
The crash occurred on Brownshill Green Road just before 8.30pm. Three ambulances, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Trusts MERIT Team with a Doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had been in a serious collision with a tree.
“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save one man in the car, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“Two other men both suffered multiple injuries, including serious head injuries, and were rapidly extricated from the wreckage by the emergency services.
“Advanced medical treatment was carried out at the scene, and both patients were transferred by ambulances to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment. Trauma teams were on standby awaiting their arrival.”
Notes to Editors: The two patients transferred to hospital by ambulance were very seriously injured and at the time of their arrival at hospital their conditions were life threatening.
