A 23-year-old woman received treatment from medics whilst trapped in her car following a serious road traffic collision in Gaydon last night (Tuesday).

The crash occurred on the B4100 at around 6pm.

Three ambulances, two rapid response vehicles and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two vehicles that had been in collision, with both suffering substantial front end damage.

“A woman travelling in one car suffered multiple serious injuries and also a reduced level of consciousness. She received emergency treatment by medics whilst trapped in the vehicle and then emergency services worked together to free her as quickly and safely as possible.

“Once released, the woman was transferred by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where a trauma team were awaiting her arrival.

“Her injuries were very serious.

“The occupants of the second car, a man in his 50’s and a young boy believed to be nine years old, both received treatment at the scene for multiple injuries.

“The man suffered shoulder and abdominal injuries, and the child suffered chest and neck injuries. Both were transferred to the same hospital for further emergency treatment.”
