THREE people had a lucky escaped when an accident on the M40 their car was left upside down in a water filled ditch.

Two men and one woman, all believed to be in their 20s, managed to escape before paramedics arrived at the crash scene on the northbound carriageway, between junctions 11 and 12 near Avon Dassett, just before 5am this morning.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said “Crews arrived to find the occupants on the hard shoulder of the motorway.

“The car they were travelling in had left the road, travelled up a steep grass embankment, down the other side and rolled over, coming to rest upside down in a water filled ditch.

“They had suffered multiple minor injuries in the crash including a minor head injury, a wrist injury and back pain.

“All three received treatment at the scene by medics and were transferred by ambulances to Warwick Hospital for further treatment.

“Considering the car came to rest on its roof in a water filled ditch, the occupants are fortunate that they had suffered only minor injuries in the crash and were able to quickly get themselves out of the vehicle.”
