AN ELDERLY woman escaped serious injury after her car ended upside down in a brook in Stratford.
Emergency services and fire crews were called to the junction of the Evesham Road and Luddington Road just before 4pm on Thursday (April 9).
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The car had reportedly gone through the wall of a bridge before landing upside down in a brook.
“The car was partially submerged when ambulance staff arrived but thankfully the driver and only occupant – a woman in her 70s – was conscious, breathing and was being helped by passers-by.
“The woman was carefully cut from the car and, upon assessment, appeared to have suffered no apparent injuries. The rescue took around 40 minutes.”
The driver was immobilised with a scoop stretcher and neck collar before being taken to Warwick Hospital for further checks.
