Hospital car park carnage leaves a car on top of a 4×4

Wednesday 16th March 2016 – 6.35pm – Murray MacGregor.

Ambulance, fire and hospital staff were left stunned after they responded to reports of a crash in a hospital car park to find a car on top of a 4×4 and another two vehicles damaged.

The incident happened in the car park of Warwick Hospital at about 4.20pm on Wednesday afternoon.

An ambulance crew who were already at the hospital immediately ran to the scene and were backed up by a further ambulance and a paramedic area support officer.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found a middle aged man in a 4×4 Land Rover who had appeared to have suffered a medical episode at the wheel.

“The vehicle had collided with a white van and a red Seat. The Seat had been pushed through a small wall and had come to rest on the bonnet of a silver BMW X5.

“The driver of the Land Rover was assisted out of the vehicle by ambulance crews and assessed before being taken into the hospital for further tests.

“Thankfully no-one else was injured in the crash.”
