Van driver escapes serious injury after crash

Tuesday 29th September 2015 – 1.35pm – John Hawker.

A man has been treated at the scene of an RTC in Coventry this morning after the van he was driving rolled over after a crash.

The incident occurred at an island near M6 junction 2 and the A4600, at just before 11am. An ambulance and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car and a flatbed van that had been in a collision. The van had subsequently rolled over and the gas bottles it was carrying were thrown all over the road, with some being found around 70 metres away. Fortunately the gas bottles were all empty at the time of the crash.

“The driver of the van, a man believed to be in his 30’s, was treated at the scene by medics for multiple minor cuts and bruises.  Following treatment the man was discharged and didn’t require further treatment.

“The woman driving the car, believed to be in her 40’s, was not injured in the crash.

“Considering the circumstances of the crash the man in the van was fortunate not to have suffered more serious injuries.”
