A Jaguar Land Rover worker has been taken to hospital after a car reportedly fell on him.
West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the Castle Bromwich factory of the luxury car firm, which has its headquarters in Whitley, Coventry.
The man in his thirties suffered injuries to his chest and head after the body shell of an F-Type fell on him in the section where the engines are combined with the car.
It is reported that it took between 20 to 30 men to lift the car body of the injured worker.
A spokesman for the service said: “A man in his thirties had a chest injury and a minor head injury after an incident with some of the plant at the factory.
"When ambulance staff arrived he had already been freed and was being cared for by colleagues.
"Ambulance staff immobilised him with the use of a spinal board and neck collar, gave him pain relief and took him to Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham.”
An investigation has now been opened by Jaguar Land Rover into how the incident may have happened.
