A VAN driver was “extremely lucky” not to have suffered more serious injuries after crashing into a tree in South Warwickshire.

It happened just outside Warmington on the road to Gaydon around 9.45am on Monday morning.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Ambulance staff found a small Renault van that had collided with a tree side on causing significant intrusion on the passenger side of the vehicle.

“Thankfully, there was no one in the passenger side of the vehicle given the damage.

“The driver, a middle-aged man was initially unconscious and had also suffered chest and back injuries.

The driver was treated at the scene before being taken to University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire for further assessment.
