A WOMAN suffered serious injuries and was trapped in her car following a crash at Gaydon.

Two cars were involved in a head-on crash on the B4100 around 6pm yesterday (Tuesday).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two vehicles that had been in collision, with both suffering substantial front end damage.

“A woman travelling in one car, believed to be around 30 years-old, suffered multiple serious injuries and also a reduced level of consciousness. She received emergency treatment by medics whilst trapped in the vehicle and then emergency services worked together to free her as quickly and safely as possible.

“Once released, the woman was transferred by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where a trauma team were awaiting her arrival. Unfortunately her injuries were very serious.

“The occupants of the second car, a man in his 50s and a young boy believed to be nine years-old, both received treatment at the scene for multiple injuries.

“The man suffered shoulder and abdominal injuries, and the child suffered chest and neck injuries. Both were transferred to the same hospital for further emergency treatment.”
