A TEENAGER has been treated for serious multiple injuries following a two-car smash in Bidford this weekend.

Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, a community first responder and a rapid response vehicle as well as the police and fire service were called to the incident at the junction of Cleeve Road and Welford Road around 7pm on Saturday (December 22).

The driver of the first car, a teenage man, was trapped in his car and had to be cut out before being treated for multiple injuries to his head, chest, pelvis and leg.

Two people from a second car, a man and a woman believed to be in their 40's, were assessed at the scene but did not require any further treatment.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival at the scene crews found two cars that had been in collision.

“Due to the serious nature of his injuries the teenager was given an anaesthetic by the doctor at the scene before being conveyed to the major trauma centre at University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment and specialist treatment.”
