A man had to be cut out of his car after it left the road in Stratford-upon-Avon this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a car which had left the road and ended up colliding with a grass verge on the northbound carriageway of the A46 in Bishopton shortly after 4.00pm (Wednesday). An ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a BASICS emergency doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival crews found a car on the opposite side of the carriageway after it had left the road and collided with a grass verge.
“The driver and sole occupant, a 27-year-old man, sustained a head injury. Ambulance staff worked to treat and stabilise the man whilst the fire service carefully extricated him from the wreckage.
“The man was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.”
