A car driver has escaped serious injury, despite serious damage to his vehicle in a collision with a coach and a lorry on the M6 in Staffordshire.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway between junctions 15 and 14 at midday.
A senior paramedic officer in a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance crew attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The car was very badly damaged, but its driver, a man believed to be in his thirties or forties, had managed to get out.
“Other than some pain to his shoulder blades, he had no other obvious or suspected injuries but, as a precaution, was taken to Stafford Hospital.
“There were twenty-one people on the coach including the driver. Three had very minor injuries and, following assessment, were discharged at the scene.”
