A WOMAN was airlifted to hospital with ‘potentially life-threatening’ injuries following a car crash in Claverdon this morning.

It followed a two-car collision on A4189 Henley Road near to the junction of Kington Lane shortly after 7.30am.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Two cars which had been involved in a serious collision. The driver, a woman, and passenger, a teenage girl, of one car were trapped in the wreckage.

“While ambulance staff worked to assess and administer treatment to the two occupants, the fire service worked carefully to release them from the car.

“The woman sustained suspected internal injuries which required advanced trauma care on scene before she was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. Her condition was said to be critical.

“The teenage girl was given treatment on scene before being taken to the same hospital by land ambulance for further checks.

“The driver of the second car, a man, managed to self-extricate from his vehicle and was found to have suffered minor injuries. He was taken to Warwick Hospital as a precaution.

“The road remains closed.”
