AMBULANCE staff were on hand to cut a driver from his car when he was involved in a three-car pile-up.

The collision, which took place at about 6.45pm on Monday, May 11 on Torcross Avenue in Coventry, saw two ambulances and a senior paramedic officer rush to the scene.

Six patients – drivers and passengers from the three cars – were assessed and treated by ambulance staff.

Speaking about the incident, a spokesperson from West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The man driving the Ford Ka was trapped with a reduced level of consciousness.

“Working with firefighters, the man was extricated after the roof had been removed.

“He was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being taken to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire with potential head and back injuries.”

Four passengers in a second car, two men and two women, were all able to exit their vehicle themselves.

But, when the two men complained of back pain, they along with one of the women were taken to the same hospital as a precaution.

The driver of the third vehicle had stopped nearby and was checked over by ambulance staff before being discharged at the scene.
