Five people were injured, one seriously, after a crash near Wolston on Saturday.

The crash happened on the B4455, Fosseway, near Wolston at around 2pm. Four ambulances and the fire service attended the scene, which involved two cars and led to the closure of part of the Fosseway.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman described the incident as ‘serious’.

He explained: “A man travelling in one car, a vintage vehicle, suffered serious head and chest injuries. He received treatment at the scene and his condition was stabilised. The man, in his 60s, was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar and transferred by ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.”

The roof of the second car was removed by the fire service so that the injured patients could be treated and removed from the vehicle.

The spokesman added: “Four people were travelling in the second vehicle and were all injured: the driver, a man in his 40s suffered chest and back injuries. The front seat passenger, a woman in her 40s, suffered neck and back injuries. A rear seat passenger, a man in his 20s suffered neck, back and arm injuries and a rear seat passenger, a woman in her 40s, suffered a minor leg injury.”
