Two people required treatment from ambulance staff before being taken to hospital following a collision between two cars and a lorry on the M42 last night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident between junctions five and six on the northbound carriageway at 7.30pm and sent two ambulances to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived at the scene to find two cars and a lorry that had collided, leaving two injured patients.

“From one of the cars, the driver, a man believed to be in his 20s, had managed to free himself from his vehicle, which ambulance staff were told had spun as a result of the incident.

“He was treated for a suspected wrist fracture and hand injury, given pain relief and taken to Heartlands Hospital for further assessment.

“A passenger from the second car, a woman thought to be in her 80s, was treated for abdominal and back pain, also given pain relief and taken to the same hospital.”
