It happened a little before 7:30am this morning on the A429 about a mile south of Wellesbourne towards Ettington in South Warwickshire.

An ambulance was on scene within seven minutes backed by the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance after four 999 calls.

When crews arrived they found the blue Mitsubishi side on against a tree. There was significant damage on the driver’s side.

Due to his injuries, ambulance staff removed the man from the vehicle rapidly and stabilised his condition.

He was suffering from fractured ribs, chest and possibly pelvic injuries.

The 63 year old was airlifted to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire where medics were on standby to receive the man.

He was described as being in a stable but serious condition upon arrival.
