A young woman has had to be cut free from the wreckage of her car after it left the road and went into a ditch.

The crash happened on the A426 Dunchurch to Southam road near Draycote Water Reservoir and just before the Leam Valley Golf Centre just after 6pm last night (Tuesday).

An ambulance, a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and a car containing the doctor from the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews found a car wedged in a ditch. The only occupant, a woman of approximately 20 years was trapped and complaining of pains in her shoulder, neck and back.

“Ambulance staff worked with firefighters to free her which took around 45 minutes as the roof and side of the car had to be removed to extricate her.

“After being assessed by the doctor, the woman was taken by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.”
