Saturday 28th June 2014 – 11.10pm – Murray MacGregor.
A couple have escaped injury despite their car leaving the M42 and ending up upside down in a field.
The crash happened between junctions 3 and 2 at about 5.10pm on Saturday afternoon – it was raining heavily at the time.
Callers who dialled 999 said that the car had spun before leaving carriageway. An ambulance crew and a senior paramedic officer attended the scene.
The couple in the car were taken to Hopwood Services to help get the motorway moving again.
After a check up they chose not to go to hospital. All ambulance resources were clear by 6.20pm.
Absolutely no doubt that they were very lucky indeed.
