Sunday 12th July 2015 – 7.00pm – Claire Brown.

A man and a woman have been injured after their cars collided in Kenilworth this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A452 Birmingham Road, Kenilworth, Warwickshire at around 12.15pm (Sunday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The driver of one car, a woman in her 20s, was trapped in the wreckage. She had sustained serious pelvic injuries and was given pain relief by ambulance staff whilst the fire service worked around them to cut her out of the car.

“The woman was carefully lifted out of the car onto a scoop stretcher and she was further immobilised with a neck collar and pelvic splint to prevent further movement of her injuries. Once stable, the woman was taken by land to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, a specialist trauma centre, for further emergency care.

“The man, believed to be in his 30s, had self-extricated from his car prior to our arrival. He sustained chest injuries caused by his seatbelt during the collision and was immobilised as a precaution before being taken to the same hospital.”
