Ambulance staff and the doctor worked rapidly as a team to administer advanced trauma care to the man on scene before he was conveyed by ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further trauma care. The doctor travelled in the ambulance to continue advanced treatment and monitoring en route. The man was said to be in a critical condition upon arrival at hospital.
