Two men have been lucky to avoid serious injuries when their car left the road and ended up in a ditch last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to Somers Road in Meriden, Coventry, shortly after 8.05pm and sent an ambulance and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

Crews arrived to find a car in a ditch with two male patients inside.

There was heavy rain and a lot of water on the ground when ambulance staff arrived.

The two men managed to free themselves from the vehicle and following assessment from crews, thankfully, it was determined that they had not suffered any serious injuries.

Not only is it extremely fortunate that both men escaped with minor injuries, but also that they were both able to free themselves from the vehicle.

They were both taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham as a precaution.
