A teenager has been trapped under a van for around 30 minutes following an incident in Nuneaton this afternoon.
Medics were called to the junction of Oaston Road and St Nicholas Road at around 2.10pm. An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a 14 year old boy that was trapped under the rear of a van.
“The boy received treatment at the scene by medics as he was carefully released from under the vehicle with the assistance of the fire service. He had suffered serious leg injuries.
“Following treatment by medics including pain relief, the teenager was transferred by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment.
“All three emergency services worked seamlessly together to ensure the patient was released as quickly and safely as possible.”
