Two people have been injured, one seriously after a two car crash on Sunday afternoon.

It happened at about 4.40pm outside the Severn Trent Water Plant, close to the junction of St Martins Road and the B4115, to the south of Coventry.

The first ambulance arrived five minutes after the 999 call and was backed up by a second ambulance, a paramedic officer, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance found two cars that had suffered significant front end damage.

“A woman in her 70s in one vehicle was in a serious condition.  Ambulance staff worked with firefighters to rapidly extricate her from the wreckage.  After treatment at the scene, she was taken by ambulance to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire with multiple injuries – the doctor from the Cosford aircraft travelled with the ambulance crew.

“The driver of the other vehicle had been able to get out of his vehicle.  The man in his 30s was treated for less serious injuries before being taken to the same hospital by ambulance.”
