A woman who was left trapped in her vehicle following a two car collision in Warwickshire this afternoon (Tuesday) has suffered various serious injuries.
West Midlands Ambulance service was called to the incident in Birches Lane, Kenilworth shortly before 3pm and sent an ambulance crew and a Paramedic Support Officer to the scene.
The collision left both cars with front end damage and the patient trapped in her vehicle for approximately 45 minutes. Ambulance staff worked together with the fire service to extricate the woman whilst continuing to treat her for her injuries.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found two cars that had been involved in a collision.
“The driver of one car, a woman reported to be in her early 40s, was trapped in her vehicle and was suffering from a number of different injuries.
“Once she had been cut free, ambulance staff immobilised her with a neck collar and spinal board and continued to treat her for a suspected fractured femur as well as back and chest injuries.
“She was then conveyed to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, a major trauma centre, for further assessment and treatment.
“The driver of the second car escaped injury.”
