Driver is found by wreckage.

Byline: By Leda Reynolds

A DRIVER was found near the burning wreckage of his car following a horror smash.

The man, believed to be in his 30s, was driving along the A45 near Solihull towards Birmingham at around 9.40pm yesterday evening when the car careered off the road, ploughed into several small trees and a sign before ending up back on the highway.

West Midlands Ambulance Service scrambled to the scene where they found the man 20 yards away from his blazing vehicle.

"The car was travelling towards Birmingham when it left the road, went across a grass verge, collided with a road sign and several small trees before ending up back on the roadway," said an ambulance spokesman.

"When crews arrived they found the vehicle on fire and a man on the grass verge about 20 yards away.

"The man had potentially serious injuries and was immobilised using a neck collar and spinal board before being taken on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where medics were on stand-by."

The condition of the man, from Coventry, is not known.
