Tuesday 27th February 2018 – 9.40am – Jamie Arrowsmith.

A woman was trapped for about an hour in her car after crashing into a tree last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Banbury Road in Stratford-Upon-Avon just after 11.35pm last night and sent one ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northampton Air Ambulance Critical Care Car to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that had suffered substantial damage in the collision.

“The driver of the car, a woman believed to be in her 20s, was still trapped inside.

“Ambulance staff worked closely with the fire service to continually reassure and treat the woman whilst she was freed from the vehicle.

“She was treated for a fractured arm and jaw as well as cuts to her face. She was immobilised and given pain relief before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on blue lights and sirens.”
