Four escape serious injury after car leaves M6 carriageway

Tuesday 14th August 2018 – 2.00pm – Claire Brown.

Four occupants of a car escaped serious injury after their car ended up down an embankment following a collision on the M6 in Staffordshire earlier today.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 14 and 13 near Seighford at 10.13am this morning (Tuesday). Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Tatenhill with a MERIT trauma doctor on board attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When the emergency services arrived on scene they found a car which had ended up down an embankment at the side of the carriageway after reportedly being involved in a collision with a lorry.

“The driver and two of the passengers, all women, had managed to get out of the vehicle unaided. All three were assessed and treated by crews for a range of minor bumps and bruises before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital as a precaution.

“A fourth occupant, an elderly man, was still in the vehicle and was quickly assessed by ambulance staff who ruled out any serious injuries but found he had sustained a shoulder injury. The man was given pain relief on scene and his injury was stabilised before he was taken by land ambulance to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”
