A man and woman in a car, and a family in a house have had a lucky escape after a crash in Coventry this evening.

The crash occurred on Earlsdon Avenue South at around 6.45pm. Two rapid response vehicles, an ambulance and a paramedic officer went to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car that was imbedded three quarters of the way through the hallway area of a house.

“The woman passenger in the car, believed to be 41 years old, suffered neck, pelvic and leg injuries and was treated whilst still in the vehicle. She was extricated from the car with the assistance of the fire service and transferred by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment.

“The man driving the car, believed to be in his late 40’s was uninjured in the crash.

“Considering the damage to the house, the two adults, two children and a dog that were inside at the time of the crash were extremely fortunate not to have been injured.”
