Serious delays on M40

Friday 11th March 2016 – 1.45pm – Chris Kowalik.

A collision involving three lorries on the M40 has resulted in one of the drivers being taken to hospital but it would appear he was not seriously injured.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the northbound carriageway just before its junction with the M42 shortly before 10.50am today.

Two ambulance crews and a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle attended.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “One of the lorries had collided with a bridge support and was on its side. Its driver, a man in his thirties had leg pain. He was immobilised and was given pain relief but because of the amount of damage to the cab, he was taken to the major trauma centre at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment and treatment.

“One of the other lorry drivers had back pain but he refused hospital treatment. The third lorry driver was uninjured.

“Delays are expected on both the M40 and the M42 for the rest of the afternoon.”
