Wednesday 20th January 2016 – 12pm – Chris Kowalik.


East met West on the M6 this morning as the Midlands’ two ambulance services joined forces to deal with a collision on the motorway.

It happened on the southbound carriageway at junction 1. West Midlands Ambulance Service was called shortly after 9.15am to assist. We sent a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance crew. East Midlands ambulance Service and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance also attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Two vehicles were involved in the collision. A lorry driver, a man in his twenties, had a serious leg injury. He was immobilised and given pain relief and was taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“A man who was driving the other vehicle involved was checked over and discharged at the scene.”
