A MAN in his 50s suffered serious injuries after a car collided with the van he was standing next to near Southam.

Emergency services were called to the Offchurch Road in Offchurch at 8.35pm on Saturday (May 23).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The man was suffering from a reduced level of consciousness initially but following treatment from ambulance staff, this gradually returned to a normal level.

“He was assessed and treated for a number of injuries, including a fractured right shoulder, a suspected fractured right arm, a chest injury and suspected abdominal injuries.

“He was immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board, given pain relief and treatment to stop any internal bleeding.”

The man was taken to University Hospital in Coventry while a second patient, who was sitting in the van – a woman in her 30s – was treated for cuts to her head and a minor leg injury but did not require hospital treatment.

The driver of the car – a man in his 20s – was treated for an arm injury and taken to Warwick Hospital for further assessment.
