A man has been seriously injured following a two car RTC in Nuneaton last night.
The crash occurred at the junction of the A5 and The Long Shoot at around 6.10pm. Three ambulances attended the scene, along with an off duty paramedic officer who was on his way to work.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had been in a significant collision. The 24 year old passenger in one car suffered pelvic and neck injuries. He also suffered a significant laceration to his head.
“The man received emergency treatment at the scene and his condition was stabilised. He was transferred to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment. The driver of the car, a woman in her 60’s suffered back pain and was also treated at the scene. She was transferred to the same hospital for further assessment.
“The three occupants of the second car, a man and woman believed to be in their 30’s, and a child believed to be 7 years old, were all checked over at the scene for minor injuries. All three were transferred by ambulance together to George Eliot Hospital as a precaution.”
