A man and woman had a lucky escape when the van they were travelling was involved in an RTC in Coventry this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to reports of a car and a van that had been in a serious collision at around 2.35pm.  Two ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a van that had been involved in collision with a car and came to rest on its roof in the middle of the road.

“Fortunately, the man and woman in the van, both believed to be in their mid 50’s suffered multiple minor injuries in the crash, mainly around the chest area where the seat belt had restrained them.

“Both patients were assessed and treated at the scene by ambulance crews but did not require further treatment and were discharged at the scene.

“There was no car at the scene that had been involved in the collision.”
