A MAN has died after a car crashed into a tree in a south Warwickshire village.

Four other people, including two children, were rushed to hospital following the crash on Honeybourne Road in Bidford-on-Avon shortly before 4pm yesterday (Wednesday). Three were taken by air ambulance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “A car suffered significant damage following a collision with a tree. There were five patients, all of whom were trapped inside the vehicle.

“The driver of the car, a man, had suffered multiple serious injuries in the incident. Unfortunately, it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The front seat passenger, a woman, was treated for serious injuries and airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in a critical condition.

“A woman and two young boys were found in the back of the car. The boys were treated for injuries not believed to be life-threatening before both being flown to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

“The woman was treated for multiple injuries and taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital by land ambulance.”
