Two women were seriously injured in a crash that saw fire crews have to cut them free.

Two cars collided on Banbury Road, in Southam, at around 1.30pm today (Thursday) and the Warwickshire Air Ambulance, carrying a doctor and critical care paramedics, was among the emergency services called to the scene.

Also sent to the scene were two ambulances and two paramedic officers, as well as firefighters.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The driver and passenger of one car – two women – sustained serious injuries in the collision.

“Ambulance staff worked closely with fire colleagues to extricate them from the vehicle while continuing to administer emergency treatment to the women.

“One woman was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire while the other was transferred by ambulance on alert to the same hospital.

“The driver of the second car, a man, was out of the vehicle when emergency services arrived. Upon assessment he was found to have relatively minor injuries and was taken to Warwick Hospital by ambulance for further checks.”
