A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews were called to reports of three cars that had been in collision just before junction 10 on the southbound carriageway of the M6.
“Crews treated two women from separate vehicles at the scene, both of whom are believed to be in their early 30s.
“They were both treated for minor neck pain and immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board as a precaution before being taken to Walsall Manor Hospital.
“The driver of the third car was uninjured in the incident.
“The incident took place in lane three of the motorway, causing a blockage which led to heavy traffic in the area as the busy rush hour approached.”
