Student ‘extremely fortunate’ not to be injured in collision
A YOUNG woman miraculously escaped injury despite her car colliding with a tree and ending upside down beside a busy Warwickshire road.
The crash happened on the northbound A46 near Leek Wootton at just before 5.00pm yesterday (Tuesday).
An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival they found a small car on its roof. They were told that the car had left the road, gone up the embankment and collided with a tree.
“The driver, a 19-year-old lady from Norfolk, who is a student in the area, had managed to get out of the car even though the roof had been crushed down to such a degree that it was touching the head rest.
“She was sheltering in a car of another motorist who had stopped at the scene.
“The teenager was given a thorough check up by ambulance staff but she was completely uninjured and did not require hospital treatment.
“Crews described her escape from injury as extremely fortunate.”
