The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance landed at the scene, adjacent to the A6086, just after 7.20pm. The patient was then given advanced intravenous pain relief.

He was then airlifted to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire for further treatment. The crew landed at the hospital shortly after 8pm.
