Friday 6th January 2017 – 3.10pm – Claire Brown.

“This particular tree has been involved in a lot of RTCs in its lifetime but thankfully, today’s, wasn’t serious.”

Those were the words of Senior Paramedic Officer Nigel Wells after attending a road traffic collision on Gypsy Lane in Nuneaton; a location ambulance staff in the area are familiar with attending for collisions.

The Trust received a 999 call reporting a car colliding with a tree at 1.40pm today and responded Nigel and an ambulance to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a man in his 40s walking around. The car was on its side next to a tree. The roof of the car had collided with the tree, bringing the car to a stop.

“The man was assessed by ambulance staff but had managed to escape the collision with just minor bumps and bruises. He didn’t require hospital treatment and was discharged on scene.”
