THERE were two car crashes within half-an-hour on the same part of the Fosse Way on Friday.
An air ambulance was called for the first crash near Wellesbourne at 3.52pm after a car crashed into a tree.
A woman in her 70s who was driving the car was trapped inside the wreckage with her husband, also in his 70s.
After they were cut free by firefighters, they were both taken to Warwick Hospital.
The woman suffered leg injuries and was immobolised with a neck collar and spinal board, and her husband suffered facial injuries. Another man sitting in the back of the car was uninjured.
The second accident took place just a couple of miles along the road near Moreton Morrell around 25 minutes later at 4.16pm when another car also crashed into a tree.
The male driver fractured his pelvis and leg, and was trapped in the vehicle for around 30 minutes.
The fire service was called again to cut the man out of the vehicle.
Paramedics gave him pain relief before stabilising his condition and taking him to University Hospital in Coventry.
A woman also suffered minor injuries.
