THE DRIVER of this Smart car had to be airlifted to hospital following a crash on Sunday (September 7) morning.

Emergency crews, including an air ambulance, were called to the A46 Alcester Road near the Bishopton island shortly before 11am.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: “Crews arrived to find two cars that had been in collision.

“The driver of one of the Smart car had sustained a head injury and neck and back pain. The woman in her 20s was immobilised and extricated from the vehicle, with the assistance of the fire service, before being airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

“The hospital was pre-alerted to the woman’s condition and medics were on standby awaiting the crew’s arrival.”

A man and woman who had been in the other car escaped uninjured.

And a cyclist was flown to hospital after falling from his bike in Tanworth-in-Arden at the weekend.

Medics found the cyclist lying in the road on Poolhead Lane around 6.30pm on Saturday (September 6).

He was not wearing a helmet and had suffered serious head and chest injuries and a potential fractured collar bone.

The man was airlifted to University Hospital in Coventry for further treatment.
