A man’s been airlifted to a major trauma centre after his car hit a tree side on causing significant damage.

It happened on the A429 about a mile south of Wellesbourne towards Ettington in South Warwickshire.

An ambulance was on scene within seven minutes and was backed up by a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance after four 999 calls at 7.23am this morning (Monday).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived they found the blue Mitsubishi side on against a tree.  There was significant damage on the driver’s side.

“Due to his injuries, ambulance staff removed the man from the vehicle rapidly and stabilised his condition.

“He was suffering from fractured ribs, chest and possibly pelvic injuries.

“The 63 year old was airlifted to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire where medics were on standby to receive the man.  He was described as being in a stable but serious condition upon arrival.”
