Emergency crews were called to the southbound carriageway near Corley Services just before 12:25.

They said the car had landed upside down after leaving the road and hitting a tree.

One of the men was in the car, the other was underneath it.

All the emergency services worked very well together in what was a very dark location. The first police officers on scene gave excellent care to the two men providing oxygen to one of the men who was struggling to breathe and supporting the head of the other. The fire service helped free them from their very badly damaged car.

Ambulance crews fully immobilised one of the men who had a head injury. The other had a suspected head injury and was anaesthetised by doctors on scene and his airway maintained.
