Sunday 9th August 2015 – 8.30pm – Chris Kowalik.
Three collisions next to each other and the potential for 17 casualties could have spelt trouble on the M5 today …
… but the good work of the ambulance crews at the scene meant most of those involved were dealt with and discharged very quickly.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the northbound carriageway between junctions 6 and 7 at 2.35pm today.
Two ambulance crews, and two paramedic officers attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The collisions were all minor, but they were all near each other at about the same time and brought with them the potential for a number of patients.
“Most of them were quickly checked over and discharged at the scene, only one was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital having been immobilised for spinal pain.”
