A van driver has been injured following an RTC in Warwickshire last night.

The crash occurred on Wolverton Road, Wolverton, near Norton Lindsey at around 9.20pm. An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Trusts MERIT team attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a van that is believed to have been in collision with a tree, overturned and come to rest back on its wheels. The driver of the van had been ejected from the vehicle in the crash and was on the road being cared for by a passer-by.

“The man, believed to be in his early 40’s, suffered serious arm injuries, back injuries and multiple abrasions to his head and face. He received emergency treatment at the scene by medics including receiving pain relief.

“Once the man’s condition was stabilised, he was transferred by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment.

“Considering he was ejected from the vehicle, the man was fortunate not to have suffered more serious or even fatal injuries.”
