Two adults and a child lucky on so many levels, despite being in RTC

Sunday 27th March 2016 – 8.15pm – Murray MacGregor.

Two adults and a child have had a fortunate escape after so many things that could have gone wrong, didn’t.

They were in a car that crashed in Dunchurch Street in Rugby, just outside Rugby School.

An ambulance and a senior paramedic officer were sent to the scene after a 999 emergency call at 3.50pm on Sunday afternoon.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a Renault Clio upside down and a length of metal railings protecting a footpath badly damaged and bent.

“Thankfully, no-one was on the footpath at the time of the crash. Equally, it was fortunate that none of the railing entered the car.

“There were two adults and a child in the car. The 24 year old man driving was uninjured. The 20 year old woman front seat passenger had a head injury and cuts and bruising – she was assessed by ambulance staff and taken to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The 3 year old girl in the back was unhurt largely because she was well strapped into a good quality child seat; this undoubtedly protected her massively during the crash and should serve as a lesson to all parents with young children about the protection a child seat can provide.

“Whilst no-one would wish a crash like this on anyone, this could easily have been a much more serious incident.”
