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.
