Hospital staff were left stunned after they responded to reports of a car on top of a 4×4 and another two vehicles damaged in their own car park.
The incident happened at Warwick Hospital at about 4.20pm on Wednesday (16 March) afternoon.
An ambulance crew ran to the scene and were backed up by a further ambulance and a paramedic area support officer.
The driver of the 4x4 Land Rover appeared to have suffered a medical episode at the wheel. The vehicle then collided with a white van and a red Seat. The Seat had been pushed through a small wall and had come to rest on the bonnet of a silver BMW.
The driver of the Land Rover was taken into the hospital for further tests. No one else was injured.

A university in the Midlands has found a new way to help its staff keep healthy - by installing a desk in their office which doubles up as a treadmill.
The University of Warwick has invested thousands of pounds in the new apparatus, named the ‘Lifespan Treadmill Desk’.
The new piece of kit is made up of a moving walkway attached to a large desk top. The desk can be adjusted to let different members of staff use it comfortably.
But staff won’t be breaking any world records just yet - they can only reach speeds of up to four miles per hour as they work.
A man has died after a crash on the M40 motorway.
It happened at around 1am on the northbound carriageway between junctions 15 - 16 just before a bridge over Stratford Canal.
When emergency services arrived they found a car with considerable damage on the embankment at the side of the road. The man was found on the carriageway and died at the scene.
The northbound carriageway remains closed while investigations continue.
The M40 Northbound is closed between J15 A46 / A429 (Longbridge Island/Warwick) and J16 A3400 (Henley In Arden).
The road is expected to remain closed for most of this morning after a car crashed, ending in a ditch at the side of the motorway.
