ONE man suffered potentially serious injuries and another has also been taken to hospital after a severe three-car crash in Nuneaton yesterday.
It happened around 4.30pm on Gipsy Lane.
Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a critical care car from The Air Ambulance Service with a BASICS doctor and paramedic on board attended the scene.
One passenger trapped in a van had to be cut free by firefighters before receiving treatment.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Ambulance staff worked closely with fire colleagues to extricate him from the van whilst he received trauma care for potentially serious injuries.”
He was taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency care.
A second patient was conveyed to the same hospital with less serious injuries whilst a third patient was discharged on scene with minor injuries.
