Leamington Editorial 7th Jul, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THIS is the remains of an off-licence in Warwick after a car drove straight into the front it.

The pensioner driving had to be freed from her car after smashing into Stratwicks on Reardon Court around 2.30pm on Saturday afternoon (July 6).

A man in the Woodloes Avenue South shop at the time suffered a slight a leg injury, but miraculously no one else was injured.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The driver of the car, a woman in her 80s, was shaken as a result of the crash but was not injured. Due to the nature of the crash she had to be cut free from the vehicle with the help of the fire service.

“A man who was in the shop at the time of the incident, believed to be in his 60s, suffered a minor leg injury and following treatment from paramedics was taken to Warwick Hospital for further assessment.”

And the following day in Warwick a man was airlifted to hospital when he suffered a serious head injury after falling off a quad bike.

It happened in a field off Banbury Road around 2.30pm.

Medics treated him at the scene for head and arm injuries before he was flown by air ambulance to University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.

No one else was involved or injured in the accident.
