“The man was found to be in cardiac arrest. Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene,” a spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said.

“The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was treated for a leg injury and a minor cut to the head. She was then transported to University hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment.”

Warwickshire Police are looking for witnesses of the crash to come forward. This includes anyone that saw either of the vehicles and the manner in which they were being driven before the crash.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Warwickshire Police collision investigation line on 01926 415415 quoting incident 341 of February 21.
