Three people have received emergency treatment from ambulance crews, two of whom had to be cut free, following a road traffic collision in Coventry last night (Sunday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Fletchamstead Highway in Eastern Green shortly before midnight and sent three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two vehicles that had been in collision, one with significant front end damage and one with damage to the side of the car.

“There were three patients, all from the same car, one who managed to free themselves from the rear of the vehicle, but the two front seat passengers had to carefully be cut free with the assistance of the fire service.

“The rear seat passenger, a woman in her 40s, freed herself from the vehicle and was assessed and treated for chest, abdominal and pelvic injuries.

“The driver, a woman in her 30s, was treated for a fractured right arm whilst the passenger, a man in his 30s, was treated for chest pain and a left wrist fracture.

“All three patients were immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment.”
