Fatal crash in Binley Woods

One person has died in a crash between a car and a bin lorry in Binley Woods.

It happened near Coombe Abbey at the junction with Brinklow Road and Combe Fields Road around 11:20 this morning. (Sept 8th)

Police are investigating what happened. Three other people have been taken to hospital.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered the car driver, a man, still inside his vehicle with serious injuries.
 
“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
 
“There were three occupants in the lorry, one of whom was trapped as a result of the collision.
 
“The man, believed to be in his 20s, was cut free with the help of the fire service.
 
“He was treated for a serious leg injury and suspected pelvic injury. He was immobilised and alerted in to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire by land ambulance. The air crew travelled with the patient to help continue treatment enroute to the hospital.
 
“The remaining two patients, a man in his 40s and a man in his 30s, were treated for minor hand and leg injuries respectively.
 
“They were both transported to the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire on the second ambulance.”

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police added, “Investigating officers are trying to establish the circumstances leading up to the incident, and are therefore appealing for anyone who may have been within the area and seen the vehicles prior to the incident, to come forward.
 
“Please contact Warwickshire Police on 101, quoting 146 of Friday 8 September 2017.”
