The crash happened on Warwick Road, near to the junction with Brittons Lane, around 6.20pm on Tuesday February 7

West Midlands Ambulance Service said the driver, a man in his 20s, was lucky not to have suffered serious injuries considering the damage to the car.

A spokesman added: “Ambulance crews discovered a car significantly damaged and an electricity pylon suspended low to the ground with cables lying on the road.

“The driver had freed himself from the vehicle and was fully conscious. He was assessed and treated for an arm injury and minor neck pain.

“He was transported to Warwick Hospital for further assessment.

“Given the damage, both to the car and the electricity pylon, it is a lucky the driver did not suffere more serious injuries.”
