RTC leaves car upside down and woman injured in Coventry

Thursday 2nd July 2015 – 4.00pm – Claire Brown.

Team work between the ambulance and fire service meant a woman who was trapped in her overturned car received prompt care following an RTC in Coventry this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A45 Kenpas Highway just after 12.30pm (Thursday). Two ambulances and a senior paramedic officer attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The collision between two cars had left one car on its roof. A woman in her 30s was in the overturned car and had reportedly been unconscious prior to the arrival of the ambulance service.

“Upon assessment ambulance staff found she had sustained suspected internal injuries as well as bruising to her limbs and upper body. With assistance from Coventry fire crews, the woman was extricated from the car and immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.

“A man from the second car sustained a foot injury. His wound was dressed by ambulance staff before being taken to the same hospital as a precaution.”
