Two men have been treated for serious injuries and taken to one of the region’s major trauma centres following a single vehicle road traffic collision in the early hours of this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the junction of the A46 and Crew Lane in Kenilworth at 4.05am and sent two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived at the scene to find a car that had suffered damage all over and two patients, one of whom was lying in the road.

“That was a man believed to be in his 20s who had suffered a number of serious injuries.

“Ambulance staff assessed him and treated him for head, leg and arm injuries. He was immobilised and given pain relief before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The doctor travelled with the patient on the back of the ambulance to continue treatment on route.

“The second patient, also a man in his 20s, was in the passenger seat.

“He was treated for a serious head injury together with back and rib injuries.

“He was also immobilised and given pain relief before being taken to the same hospital.”
