Wednesday 15th March 2017 – 9.30am – Murray MacGregor.

Two men have been injured, one seriously after a crash that left two cars with substantial damage.

It happened at the junction of Leamington Road and Bullimore Grove in Kenilworth at about 6.25pm on Tuesday evening.

Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found the driver of one of the cars trapped.  Working with firefighters, the man was cut free.

“The 55 year old had a head injury and a number of fractures.  He was immobilised, had a pelvic binder fitted and had his other fractures splinted before being taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The driver of the other car, a 41 year old man had suffered relatively minor injuries, but due to the nature of the collision was also taken to the major trauma centre as a precaution.”
