A motorist has had a lucky escape when his car ended up on its roof after it left the carriageway of the M40 in Warwickshire.
The accident happened near junction 12 of the motorway in Gaydon, Southam, at about 3.45pm on Monday.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival crews found a car which had crossed the crash barrier on the nearside of the motorway and had collided with a road sign on the embankment before coming to rest on its roof.
“Miraculously, the driver, a man in his 30s, had got himself out of the vehicle and suffered minor injuries.
“Crews immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board due to the mechanism of the crash before taking him to Warwick Hospital for further assessment.
“Considering the nature of the crash and the damage sustained to the car, it is remarkable that the man didn’t suffer more serious or even fatal injuries.”
