A 29-YEAR-OLD man is fighting for his life after a late night car crash in Rugby.

The driver of a black Audi A4 was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries to his leg, head and chest, following the two car crash in Parkfield Road around 1.15am on Sunday. His passenger, also a man, was taken to hospital with serious head injuries.

The driver and passenger in a black Mercedes E Class suffered minor injuries.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to help them with their inquires.

PC Jamie Blood, from the Warwickshire Police Road Policing Unit, said: “We are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the collision or who may have seen either vehicle being driven prior to the incident to come forward.

“We’re especially keen to speak to the driver of a silver vehicle who was driving along Parkfield Road, towards the Lawford Road junction, around the time of the incident.”
