FIVE people were ‘extremely fortunate’ to escape serious injuries following a crash in Leamington town centre on Friday night (February 20).

A car and a 4X4 were involved in a serious smash at the junction of Warwick Street and the Parade shortly before 10pm which saw the 4X4 roll over and demolish a set of traffic lights.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car and a 4×4 type vehicle that had been in a serious crash. Due to the crash the 4×4 vehicle had rolled over and demolished a set of traffic lights.

“Fortunately, the three occupants of the 4×4 vehicle, and the two occupants of the car, all suffered no serious injuries and were checked over by ambulance crews before being discharged at the scene.

“Travelling in the 4×4 were three men in their 20s, and in the car and man in his early 20s and a woman in her late teens.

“Considering the location of the crash it is extremely fortunate that neither the occupants of the vehicles or any pedestrians suffered more serious injuries.”
