A woman has died and a man has been taken to hospital following a collision between a car and a taxi last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of Abbey Road and London Road in Coventry shortly after 12.10am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The two patients were travelling in the taxi.

“On arrival, it immediately became evident that the woman, who was a passenger, was in cardiac arrest.

“Crews immediately began administering advanced life support, but unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save her and she was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The taxi driver was treated for the effects of shock and a knee injury before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment.

“There were no patients from the second car involved in the incident.”
