A DRIVER had a lucky escape after crashing into an electricity pylon.

The crash happened on Warwick Road in Norton Lindsey, near to the junction with Brittons Lane, around 6.20pm on Tuesday February 7.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said the driver, a man in his 20s, was lucky not to have suffered serious injuries despite the damage to the car.

A spokesman added: “Arriving at the scene, ambulance crews discovered a car that had been significantly damaged and an electricity pylon suspended low to the ground with cables lying on the road.

“The driver had freed himself from the vehicle and was fully conscious. He was assessed by ambulance staff and treated for an arm injury and minor neck pain.

“He was immobilised as a precaution and transported to Warwick Hospital for further assessment.

“Given the damage visible to ambulance crews on arrival at the scene, both to the car and the electricity pylon, it is a lucky escape for the driver that he has not suffered more serious injuries in the collision.”
