Five people have been injured and taken to hospital following a motorway collision involving two lorries and a car this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway of the M6, between junctions 15 and 14, at 4.35am and sent four ambulances, two paramedic officers and a BASICS doctor to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find five patients requiring treatment following the collision.

“A teenage boy, who had been travelling in the car, received treatment at the scene for serious injuries before being transported to Royal Stoke University Hospital on blue lights and sirens.
