Saturday 6th June 2015 – 9.00pm – Claire Brown.
A motorist has died in a single car road traffic collision on the M6 motorway in Staffordshire today.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 16 and 15, about a mile and a half from Keele Services, shortly after 5.30pm this evening. Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a North Staffordshire BASICS doctor attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “One car had left the carriageway and landed upside down in a wooded area at the side of the road after colliding with the central reservation.
“A motorist, who had witnessed the collision, dialled 999 and pulled over onto the hard shoulder in order to flag down the ambulance crews and medic.
“Sadly, it quickly became apparent to ambulance staff that nothing could be done to save the driver who was confirmed dead on scene. No one else was in the car at the time of the collision.”
