A woman suffered a suspected fractured sternum in a collision that led to the car she was driving ending up on its side.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a report of a two-car collision at the junction of Fosse Way and Harbury Lane, near Leamington, shortly before 7.50am today.

Three ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A woman who was driving the car that had overturned was immobilised with the use of a spinal board and neck collar and was taken to Warwick Hospital.

“A man who was driving the other car involved had minor injuries and was taken to the same hospital for further assessment.”

The Courier reported this week that safety improvements at the junction were unlikely to go ahead as the county council did not deem it a priority site. More than 1,500 people have signed a petition for action to be taken.
