Two women, a man and a young girl ended up in hospital on Saturday evening after being involved in a two-car collision in Warwickshire.
West Midlands Ambulance Service received a 999 call reporting a collision on the A439 Warwick Road, Black Hill shortly after 7.15pm on Saturday 3rd December. Three ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the critical care car from The Air Ambulance Service attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars which had collided. The first car contained four occupants. A woman in her 40s was suffering chest discomfort and a 12-year-old girl was found to have sustained hip pain in the collision. Both were fully assessed by ambulance staff before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire as a precaution. Two other occupants were described as ‘walking wounded’ and did not require hospital treatment.
“From the second car, two occupants were more seriously injured. A 46-year-old man, the rear seat passenger, was treated on scene by ambulance staff for a nasty laceration to his head together with leg injuries. He was taken to the same hospital on blue lights for further trauma care.
“The second patient, a 44-year-old woman who was the front seat passenger in the car, suffered back and lower chest pain and was given pain relief by crews to help ease her discomfort before being taken to the same hospital on alert.”
