THREE people had to be taken to hospital after a car overturned during a crash on the A46.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A46 between Stoneleigh and the Leamington/Kenilworth turning shortly after 2.15pm on Monday (May 18).

Two ambulance crews, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle, a community paramedic in a rapid response vehicle and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “There were three people in the car, all of whom were taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire in ambulances.

“A woman who had cuts, bumps and bruises was immobilised with the use of a spinal board and neck collar. A man was also immobilised before being taken to hospital for further assessment.

“The female driver of the car was a ‘walking wounded’ casualty who went to hospital by ambulance for further checks.”
