A road traffic collision involving a car and a tree has left four people injured in Leamington Spa last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Harbury Lane in Bishops Tachbrook at 10.07pm last night (Sunday). Three ambulances, a paramedic officer and a critical care paramedic from the Air Ambulance Service attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance crews arrived to find an overturned car which was in a ditch at the side of the road after colliding with a tree. One occupant of the car, a teenage boy, was extricated with help from the fire service whilst ambulance staff assessed him for injuries. The teenager received treatment for potentially serious injuries before being transported by ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further trauma care.
“Three other occupants had managed to self-extricate from the care and received assessment by crews. A woman suffered suspected serious injuries and was stabilised before being alerted to the same hospital for onward care. A third patient was found with non-life-threatening injuries whilst the fourth patient was described as ‘walking wounded’ with minor injuries. Both were taken to the same hospital for further checks.”
