Thursday 6th November – 4.10pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.
Three people were lucky to escape without more serious injuries when the car they were travelling in left the road and rolled over before coming to rest in a field in Rugby this morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the scene near to the junction of Rugby Road and Cathiron Lane in Harborough Magna, shortly before 8.30am and sent two ambulances and a paramedic officer to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car in a field that had completely rolled over and three patients who had all managed to free themselves from the vehicle.
“The driver of the car, a 43-year-old woman, was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board and treated for neck and back injuries.
“A second patient, a 17-year-old woman, was also immobilised and treated for neck and back injuries before they were both taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.
“The third patient, a woman, was assessed by ambulance crews but was uninjured in the incident.”
