Two men became trapped in their car following a collision with a lorry on the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire border earlier today.

West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the scene at 5.40am.

When crews arrived they found two men, the driver and passenger of the car trapped in the wreckage.

Ambulance staff assessed both men and found the passenger had sustained suspected serious injuries to his leg and pelvis whilst the driver escaped with less serious injuries.

"Whilst fire colleagues worked to release the two men, ambulance staff and the doctor continued treatment. The passenger was given pain relief before he was extricated from the car and immobilised with a neck collar, spinal board and pelvic splint.

"The man was then taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, a major trauma centre, for further treatment. The doctor travelled in the back of the ambulance to continue treatment en route. The driver, who had sustained a collarbone injury, was also immobilised and taken to the same hospital for further treatment.”
