Two men have avoided serious injury after the car they were travelling in suffered significant front end damage and span 360 degrees following a collision with a tree in Nuneaton this afternoon.

The crash happened just before 2pm on Nuthurst Lane in Astley.

“The driver of the car, a man in his 40s, was treated for cuts to his head, believed to have been suffered by his head hitting the sun roof. He remained conscious throughout the incident and was transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The second man, also thought to be in his 40s, was a front seat passenger and thankfully avoided any injury in the incident which led to him being discharged at scene.

“The seriousness of the collision is highlighted by the damage that the car has suffered, therefore both men are fortunate as they appear to have escaped without serious injury.”
