Monday 23rd March 2015 – 6am – Chris Kowalik.

Three people have been taken to hospital, two of them on alert, following a collision involving two cars in Warwickshire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Campden Road, Lower Quinton, south of Stratford Upon Avon shortly after 7.20pm on Sunday 22nd March.

Two ambulance crews, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and the MERIT trauma team consisting of a trauma doctor and critical care practitioner attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A man in his thirties who was a lone driver of one of the cars was initially unconscious and was trapped. With the help of the fire service, he was rapidly cut free from his car. He had serious leg injuries and was taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire which had been put on alert in anticipation of his arrival.

“In the other car were a three year old girl and her mother who is in her thirties. The girl had facial injuries and neck and back pain. An assessment from the MERIT trauma doctor also raised concerns about her condition and, having been immobilised, she was taken to the same hospital under alert.

“Her mother had abdominal pains and travelled in the same ambulance as her daughter to the same hospital.”
