Three men have been hurt after a crash involving a horse box in Warwickshire.

Thankfully, there was no animal in the trailer at the time of the incident which took place at Barford Road in Sherbourne at around 4.00pm on Monday afternoon.

An ambulance and a paramedic officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a 4×4 on the correct side of the road, but the horse box it had been towing on the opposite side of the road where it had been in collision with a small Suzuki car.

“There had been three men in car at the time of the crash. The 23 year driver was complaining of back pain. He was taken to Warwick Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

“The other two, who were 20 and 34 were assessed at the scene but were discharged with advice.

“The man driving the 4×4 was uninjured.
