Three people have been treated by ambulance crews after a lorry carrying hay bales and a car collided on the M6 this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service dispatched two ambulances and a senior paramedic ambulance officer to the scene of the collision which took place on the northbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 3 and 3a shortly before 1.15pm.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews found a lorry and a car that had been in collision. The lorry, that had been carrying hay bales, had overturned blocking three lanes of the carriageway.
“Fortunately following assessment by ambulance crews both the lorry driver, a man in his 60’s, and the car driver, a woman in her 40’s, were found to be uninjured.
“A third patient, a man, who was in a car behind the collision, was treated at the scene for back pain after coming to a sudden halt to avoid the collision. The driver did not require any further hospital treatment.”
