Two people have been taken to a major trauma centre after a crash that left one patient trapped for over an hour.
The incident happened at about 10.50am this morning on the A3400 Shipston on Stour to Tredington road.
The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, two ambulance crews and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance crews found two cars that had both suffered front end damage. One of the cars was off the road in a hedge and both drivers were trapped.
“Ambulance staff worked with firefighter to extricate the patients.
“The first, a middle aged woman was able to get out of the vehicle after firefighters removed the door. She was treated for potentially serious injuries and was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.
“It took over an hour to get the driver of the second car out. The man, who was in his 60s had less serious injuries. He was given pain relief and was immobilised before being taken to the same hospital by land ambulance.”
