A woman driver was just inches from being impaled by a wooden fencepost that went through her windscreen in Warwick today (Friday).

Her car left the A46 in Warwick and collided with a wooden fence and a barbed wire fence before coming to rest in a hedge.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the scene shortly after 10.50am.

A senior paramedic officer in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance crew attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “When crews arrived the woman who is in her twenties was already out of the car uninjured.

“A fencepost had pierced through the windscreen and, fortunately for the driver, it had brushed along the inside of the driver’s door, missing her.

“Had it been a few inches across, the woman would have been impaled. She was very lucky.

“After a check-up from crews at the scene, she was taken home by her father.”
