More M6 misery as pedestrian injured


Wednesday 27th July 2016 – 9am – Jamie Arrowsmith.


It was a day to forget for motorists on the M6 yesterday as the motorway was closed for a second time last night (Tuesday) following a collision between a lorry and a pedestrian.

Following the early morning lorry fire which caused disruption near to junction 7 on the northbound carriageway, West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to junction 9, again on the northbound carriageway, just after 10.30pm and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews were told that the collision happened at low speed, leaving a male pedestrian injured.

“Ambulance crews assessed the man and treated him for a minor head injury, back and chest pain. He was then transported to Walsall Manor Hospital for further treatment.

“The driver of the lorry was uninjured in the incident.”
