Lucky escape as car ends up in ditch


Saturday 28th November 2015 – 7.45am – Jamie Arrowsmith.



Two men have been incredibly lucky to avoid serious injuries when their car left the road and ended up in a ditch last night (Friday).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Somers Road in Meriden, Coventry, near to Stonebridge Golf Centre, shortly after 8.05pm and sent an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car in a ditch with two male patients inside. There was heavy rain and a lot of water on the ground when ambulance staff arrived.

“The two men managed to free themselves from the vehicle and following assessment from crews, thankfully it was determined they had not suffered any serious injuries.

“Not only is it extremely fortunate that both men escaped with minor injuries, but also that they were both able to free themselves from the vehicle.

“They were both taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham as a precaution.”
