Paramedic area manager, Martyn Scott, said: “Ambulance crews arrived on scene to find a 4×4 vehicle that had overturned which was towing a trailer with agricultural equipment. The man driving the 4×4, believed to be in his 60s, was partially ejected from the vehicle and his leg became trapped under the vehicle that was on its side.”

The man received emergency treatment at the scene by ambulance crews, including pain relief, and his condition was stabilised. The vehicle was then lifted by the fire service using air bags and he was safely removed. The man was trapped for around one hour and received further treatment for his serious leg injury and a pelvic injury once he was released.

“The patient was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency treatment. The hospital had been alerted to the man’s arrival and serious injury.” Mr Scott said.

A man and a woman travelling in the second car were both treated at the scene for multiple minor injuries. The couple, believed to be in their 60s, were transferred by land ambulance to Horton General Hospital, Banbury for further treatment
