A CAR driver has been treated for leg and chest injuries after his vehicle left the road and collided with a tree yesterday afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the A444 in Coventry – between Bedworth and junction three of the M6 – at 4.15pm.

An ambulance and paramedic support officer were sent to the scene.

The driver, a man thought to be in his 20s, was treated for injuries to his leg and chest and immobilised at the scene before being transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.

Upon arrival, crews discovered a car, which has significant damage, resting against a tree up a grass bank.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “It is believed the vehicle collided with another car and the central reservation before leaving the road.

“Nobody else was injured in the incident.”
