A man has died after being in collision with a lorry on the M40 in Warwickshire this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a collision involving a lorry and a pedestrian on the southbound carriageway of the M40 between junctions 13 and 12 in Gaydon at 3.15pm (Saturday). Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Sadly, nothing could be done to save the pedestrian, a man, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.
“The lorry driver, a man, and a woman who witnessed the incident were treated at the scene by paramedics but did not require hospital treatment.”
Sorry for the loss to the mans family. I was the GP who attended before the ambulance came. Just wanted to say well done to the medical student and the bystanders who did an amazing job.
