Paramedics, police, firefighters from Kenilworth and Leamington, and the air ambulance all rushed to the scene following the crash.

A statement from the West Midlands Ambulance service said: “A woman was left with serious pelvic injuries and a man needed A&E following a serious two car RTC in Kenilworth.

“The woman was carefully lifted out of the car onto a scoop stretcher and she was further immobilised with a neck collar and pelvic splint to prevent further movement of her injuries.

“Once stable, the woman was taken by land to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, a specialist trauma centre, for further emergency care.

“The man had self-extricated from his car prior to our arrival. He sustained chest injuries caused by his seat belt during the collision and was immobilised as a precaution.”

Road closures were in place from Chase Farm and residents have since taken to special media to praise emergency service teams for their efforts during the afternoon.
