Serious RTC in Nuneaton

Claire Brown – Friday 17th December 2021 – 9.40am.

A three vehicle RTC in Nuneaton yesterday has left one man with potentially serious injuries and another patient requiring hospital treatment.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Gipsy Lane, Nuneaton at 4.32pm yesterday (Thursday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a critical care car from The Air Ambulance Service with a BASICS doctor and paramedic on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived to find a serious RTC involving three vehicles. A passenger in a van involved in the collision, a man, was trapped in the vehicle. Ambulance staff worked closely with fire colleagues to extricate him from the van whilst he received trauma care for potentially serious injuries. He was taken on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency care.

“A second patient was conveyed to the same hospital with less serious injuries whilst a third patient was discharged on scene with minor injuries.”
