Monday 29th April 2013 – 6.05pm – John Hawker.
A woman has died and a man has been injured following an RTC on the M42 motorway this afternoon.
The crash occurred on the west bound carriageway, near junction 3a, at around 2.40pm. An ambulance, two rapid response vehicles, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a 4×4 vehicle that had left the motorway, been in collision with a fence and come to rest in a field some distance away.
“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save a woman passenger in the vehicle, and she was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The man driving the vehicle was treated at the scene for multiple minor injuries and the effects of shock. He was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham for further emergency treatment.”
