Ambulance staff were relieved to find three men had escaped serious injuries after an RTC caused a fair amount of damage and left one car in a field.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision involving a van and a car on the Banbury Road in Warmington on the operational border separating West Midlands and South Central Ambulance Service. Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene along with police and fire colleagues.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The driver of the van, a man in his 50s, sustained minor chest injuries. His passenger, a man in his 40s, had to be cut out of the vehicle by the fire service as the mechanical damage caused in the collision meant his door wouldn’t open. He too suffered minor chest injuries. Both were taken to Horton General Hospital in Banbury for further precautionary checks.
“The driver of the car which ended up in a field, a man in his 30s, was assessed by ambulance staff and was found to be suffering with general aches and pains. He too was taken to the same hospital as a precaution.
“Considering the damage caused to both vehicles, it was remarkable that no one suffered more serious injuries.”
