A DRIVER was trapped in her car after leaving the M40 and smashing through a fence into a field.

Working in the dark in the middle of a field, West Midlands Ambulance Service was helped by lighting from its own Hazardous Area Response Team vehicles and from the fire service as they worked to free the woman who was in her 30s.

The accident happened on the southbound carriageway between the Longbridge island and Henley junctions around 6.30pm on Thursday March 19.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The woman had pains to her neck, back and chest and a number of minor cuts. She also had pains to her shoulder which may have been fractured.




“She was given pain relief at the scene and was immobilised before being taken to Warwick Hospital.”
