A MAN had to be cut free from the wreckage of his car after a smash on Banbury Road in Bishop's Tachbrook.

His Clio collided with a 4x4, near to the entrance of Tachbrook Hill Farm, just before 4.30pm on Monday afternoon (July 2).

An ambulance, paramedic and Warwickshire Air Ambulance were sent to the scene and the man was taken to Warwick Hospital after being cut free.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found that the Renault Clio had significant rear end damage while the 4x4 had front end damage.

“Those at the scene said that the man in the Clio had initially been unconscious for a period but had come round.

“Working with the fire service, the man was cut free from the wreckage before being assessed by the doctor from the air ambulance, immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board and taken to hospital for further assessment.

“A mother and daughter in the 4x4 were uninjured.”
