Two drivers taken to major trauma care post-Kenilworth crash

Two people were taken to a major trauma centre after a serious crash on the junction of Leamington Road and Bullimore Grove in Kenilworth at 6.30pm last (Tuesday) night.

Police, ambulance and the fire service attended the scene where one driver had to be cut out from the wreckage by a fire fighter.

One car was left unrecognisable after the crash, whilst the other is left with a massive hole on the front of the driver’s side. The latter car had its bonnet and windscreen crushed.

Two ambulances and a paramedic support officer arrived at the scene to treat the two men.

“On arrival, ambulance staff found the driver of one of the cars trapped. Working with firefighters, the man was cut free,” a spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said.

“The 55 year old had a head injury and a number of fractures . He was immobilised, had a pelvic binder fitted and had his other fractures splinted before being taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.”

“The driver of the other car, a 41 year old man had suffered relatively minor injuries, but due to the nature of the collision was also taken to the major trauma centre as a precaution,” they added.

Debris including shards of glass, pieces of both cars and their skid marks were left over the road.
