The 52-year-old driver of the Ford Focus was taken to University Hospital Coventry with serious injuries.

The 16-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the incident and has since been released under investigation.

An eyewitness said: “I saw the Audi. I checked it to make sure there was no one trapped inside. Then I saw the Ford Focus on the other side of the road. A guy was on the phone to an ambulance.

“I spoke to the lady in the car. She was badly cut and said she’ couldn’t move her legs. Her car was smashed up. I just talked to her and tried to comfort her.”
