EMERGENCY crews worked frantically to free a woman knocked unconscious following a car crash near Shipston on Tuesday (January 8).

Two women and a man were injured in the two car collision at the junction of the Fosse Way and Campden Road shortly before 5.30pm (Tuesday).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The driver of one car, a woman in her 50s, suffered multiple injuries and had been knocked unconscious. Crews and the doctor worked to stabilise her condition and administer treatment whilst working closely with the fire service to carefully extricate her from the vehicle. This careful process took over an hour and once released, the woman was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board before being taken by ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“Two occupants from the second car, a woman and a man were also injured. The woman suffered pelvic and back pain and also had to be extricated and fully immobilised by ambulance staff. She was taken to the same hospital. The man suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital as a precaution.”
