Two people have had a lucky escape after a tree crushed the roof of the car they were in.

It happened on Coventry Road in Nuneaton near where it becomes a dual carriageway.

Two ambulances were sent to the scene after a 999 call at 12.05pm today (Thursday).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car that had suffered considerable damage to the roof, with the ceiling being pushed down into the vehicle.

The 17 year old woman driving had managed to get out of the car herself but was complaining of neck and shoulder pain.  She was immobilised before being taken to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

A 46 year old man in the passenger seat was complaining of head pain.  After assessment he was discharged at scene.”
