Three people have received emergency medical treatment following a road traffic collision on the M6 today.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident on the southbound carriageway near to junction one shortly before 8.15am this morning.

Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire air ambulance were dispatched to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Crews arrived to find two cars and a lorry that had been in collision.

“Each vehicle had been carrying a single occupant at the time of the incident. The driver of the first car, a woman, was trapped in her vehicle for a period of time. The woman was immobilised as emergency services worked closely together to safely remove her from the car. The casualty was treated for a serious arm injury and given pain relief at the scene before being airlifted to the major trauma centre at University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The driver of the second car, a woman and the driver of the lorry, a man, were treated at the scene for minor injuries before they were both conveyed to University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment and treatment.”
