Friday 11th January 2019 – 10.30am – Jamie Arrowsmith.

A man has been treated for serious injuries following a two-car collision night which resulted in one of them hitting a tree.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A5 in Churchover, Rugby – near to the junction with Newton Lane – at 11.24pm and sent one ambulance and a paramedic officer to the scene. Two critical care teams from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Service also attended in rapid response cars, together with an ambulance from East Midlands Ambulance Service.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a man lying near a bush and a car that had suffered significant damage.

“He was treated for multiple serious injuries suffered in the incident before being taken to hospital on blue lights and sirens. Medics from one of the critical care teams travelled with the patient on the back of the ambulance to help continue treatment en-route to hospital.

“A further three patients were assessed at the scene but were all discharged on scene with minor injuries.”
