Saturday 3rd October 2015 – 3.35pm –Chris Kowalik.
Two people who were in a car that overturned several times before coming to rest on its side in the middle of a motorway have got away with just superficial injuries.
It happened on the M6 northbound carriageway, a few hundred metres before its junctions with the M6 Toll and the M42.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called just before 1.30pm and sent a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance crew to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a car on its side, up against the central reservation barrier. There were two people, a man and a woman both in their thirties trapped inside the car.
“They were cut free with the help of the fire service and were assessed at the scene. They were found to have superficial injuries which the officer at the scene described as ‘miraculous’. As a precaution, they were both taken to Heartlands Hospital.
“There was a second car involved in this collision which had minor damage and whose two occupants, a man and a woman, were both shaken but uninjured.”
