A man was airlifted to hospital yesterday (Monday) afternoon after a two-car crash in the Harborough district.
Firefighters from Harborough and paramedics were called to the A4304 Theddingworth Road in Husbands Bosworth at about 1pm.
Two cars were involved in the collision and two casualties were treated by the ambulance service, said the Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service daily report log.
One of the cars ended up on its side in the front garden of a resident’s home.
A 20-year-old man was airlifted to University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire while the other casualty was taken to hospital for treatment by a land ambulance, said the fire report.
A spokesman for the air ambulance said the 20-year-old managed to free himself from his car but was suffering from back and neck pain.
He was treated by the crew who administered pain relief and an IV and immobilised him before flying to the hospital.
His condition was reported as ‘stable’ en route, said the spokesman.
The helicopter received the call at 12.53pm, was on the scene at 1.11pm and arrived at the hospital at 2pm.
