A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that is believed to have left the road and been in a serious collision with a tree. The car had suffered considerable damage.

“The driver of the car, a man believed to be in his early 30’s, suffered serious leg, pelvic and chest injuries.

“Considering the damage to the vehicle the man is fortunate not to be more seriously or even fatally injured.”Rugely RTC 2
