A CAR driver has received emergency treatment from ambulance staff and been taken to hospital after her car crashed into a tree this morning (June 30).

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Albany Road, Coventry, at 3.10am and sent an ambulance and paramedic area support officer to the scene.

The woman, believed to be in her early 20s, was treated for a neck injury and quickly transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered a car that had suffered significant damage after colliding with a tree.

“The damage suffered to the car meant accessing the patient was difficult and ambulance staff had to work carefully to assess the driver.”
