Trapped driver seriously injured in two-car RTC

Thursday 19th October 2017 – 11am – Jamie Arrowsmith.

A car driver received specialist trauma care before being taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres following a two-car collision last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A429 Essington Road in Wellesbourne at 11.15pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer, a rapid response paramedic and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars with front end damage, one of which still had the driver, a man, trapped inside.

“Ambulance staff, who were told the man had lost consciousness prior to their arrival, worked closely with the fire service to safely free him from the car.

“Once free, he was treated for leg and elbow fractures and sedated by the air ambulance doctor in order to stabilise his condition. He was then transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“There were two patients from the second car, both who had suffered minor injuries and did not require further treatment at hospital.”
