A MAN in his 20s was left with serious injuries after his car crashed into a tree near Morrisons.

A red Nissan 300 Sport which had exited the roundabout on the Warwick Highway, lost control and mounted the grass verge, hitting a tree shortly before 8pm on Wednesday (May 9).

The man was taken by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham with a suspected head injury following the incident and is currently in a critical but stable condition.

Four rapid response vehicles, an ambulance crew and the Warwickshire and Northampton Air Ambulance attended the scene as well as a passing off-duty nurse who stopped to help.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "He was anaesthetised at the scene and his airway maintained and was taken by ambulance, accompanied by a BASICS emergency doctor, to hospital."

The road was closed by Police and traffic was diverted until it reopened at around midnight.

PC Daren Riley said: "No other vehicle was involved but the driver has suffered serious injuries and we are still investigating the circumstances. This was near a busy junction and there would have been a fair amount of traffic around at that time. We would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened and can help us."

PC Riley can be contacted at Rubery Police Station on 101.
