Four people have been injured after a four vehicle RTC in Warwickshire this afternoon.
The incident occurred on the Fosse Way, near to Harbury, Leamington Spa at around 3.50pm. Three ambulances, an Emergency Care Practitioner and a senior paramedic officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival at the scene, crews found a lorry and three cars that had been in a significant collision.
“The driver of one car, a woman in her 70’s, suffered serious wrist, ankle, hip and suspected pelvic injuries. Due to the damage to the vehicle, the woman was trapped in her car, and the roof was removed so she could be safely extricated by ambulance crews. She received emergency treatment at the scene and was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar.
“A passenger in the car, a man in his 40’s, was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Both patients were transferred by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment and treatment.
“A woman driving a second car, believed to be in her 70’s, suffered neck, chest and hip injuries. She was also extricated from the car and immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar. She was treated at the scene and transferred by ambulance to Warwick Hospital for further treatment.
“The driver of the third car, a man believed to be in his 50’s, suffered facial injuries in the crash and was treated at the scene. He was transferred to Warwick hospital for further treatment.
