THREE people were rushed to hospital after the car they were travelling in overturned into a ditch near Southam.

The car left the road and smashed into trees before finishing up on its roof at Deppers Bridge around 7.30pm on Saturday (October 18).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “A 24-year-old man suffered a suspected head injury and lacerations. An 18-year-old girl was found with chest and suspected head injuries. A 22-year-old woman suffered a hip injury and a nasty fractured arm.

“The location and positioning of the car made it a difficult case for ambulance staff and fire fighter to treat the patients.

“Whilst ambulance staff worked to stabilise the patients’ conditions, the fire service carefully extricated them from the car. The 22-year-old woman was the last person to be released from the wreckage after around 45 minutes.

“All three patients were immobilised and administered pain relief before being taken by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment.”
