Friday 3rd July 2015 –7.20pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.
Three people have been injured in a two-car collision on the M6 northbound this afternoon which led to heavy traffic for commuters as they tried to make their way home.
The incident took place near to junction 14 shortly before 4.50pm and West Midlands Ambulance Service sent three ambulances, a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “There was severe congestion on the northbound carriageway of the M6 following a two-car collision near to junction 14.
“On arrival, crews discovered three patients, all of whom were complaining of neck and back pain.
“In one of the cars was a man and woman, both believed to be in their 30s, whilst in the second car there was a male patient.
“All three were immobilised with the use of a neck collar and spinal board and taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital by land ambulance.
“Given the length of the queuing traffic, the motorway is expected to remain extremely busy for some time.”
