A WOMAN, whose car hit the central reservation of the M40, after a collision with an HGV, escaped with just minor injuries.

Her car was not so lucky and suffered significant damage following the incident – on the northbound carriageway near the Gaydon turn off – around 8.30am on Thursday February 15.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car had suffered very significant damage down the nearside, but the driver’s side had escaped the worst of it. This allowed the 30 year-old woman from Slough to get out of the vehicle unaided.

“In addition, the crash damaged the central reservation and left debris on both the southbound and northbound carriageways.

“Considering the damage to the car, the woman escaped with remarkably minor injuries. She had a minor injury to her shoulder, face and a hand.

“Due to the nature of the crash, she was taken by ambulance to Warwick Hospital for further assessment.”
