A number of people have been taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital following three separate road traffic incidents on the M6 in Staffordshire this afternoon.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the exit slip road off the M6 junction 16 northbound at just after 2pm.
Four ambulances, together with two paramedic officers in rapid response vehicles and two BASIC doctors attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “999 callers were advising of an incident near Junction 16. Crews responded to the first incident only to find two further collisions taking place whilst they were treating patients.
“In the first incident involving a van and two cars, two patients were treated for minor injuries. They were taken hospital for further assessment and treatment.
“Crews were dealing with the first incident when a second collision took place at the same location. Two further patients were treated for minor injuries and also transferred to Royal Stoke University Hospital.
“A third incident then took place with a car overturning. A woman was treated for breathing difficulties and a man received minor arm injuries. Two children also travelling in the car were uninjured but taken to hospital for assessment. All four patients were conveyed to the University hospital.”
