Ambulance on M6

Monday 27th October 2014 – 11.10pm – Murray MacGregor.

A man has died after an incident on the M6 in Staffordshire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway just before junction 12 at 7.20pm on Monday evening to reports of a serious road traffic collision.

Two ambulances, a BASICS doctor, the MERIT trauma doctor and two paramedic officers were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a man who had been in collision with an HGV. Sadly it was immediately obvious that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

The drivers of three HGVs and a van were treated at the scene for shock but were discharged after being assessed.

The subsequent investigation meant the M6 was closed by police leading to delays.
