Ambulance staff have assessed and treated six patients from a three vehicle crash that resulted in the roof being removed from one of the vehicles.

The crash in Torcross Avenue in Coventry happened at about 6.45pm on Monday evening.

Two ambulances and a senior paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews found two cars with significant front end damage. The man driving the Ford Ka was trapped with a reduced level of consciousness.

“Working with firefighters, the man was extricated after the roof had been removed. He was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire with potential head and back injuries.

“There were four people in the second car; two men and two women. All four had managed to get out of the vehicle themselves.

“The two men were complaining of back pain. They along with one of the women were taken to the same hospital as a precaution. The second woman was uninjured.

“The man driving the third vehicle that had stopped nearby was checked over but was uninjured and was discharged at the scene.”
