A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car driver who is believed to be in his thirties, appeared uninjured but had pains in his arm and neck.

“Because of the amount of damage done to the car, we played it safe and, with the help of the fire service, he was freed, immobilised and taken to Warwick Hospital for further checks.

“The other drivers were shaken but unhurt.”
