HGV driver dies on M5

Jordan Eggington – Friday 20th November 2020 – 11.15am.

A lorry driver has sadly died, after it’s believed he suffered a medical emergency behind the wheel this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 6:55am (Friday) to reports an HGV had crashed into the barriers on the M5 at Junction 1. We sent one ambulance, a paramedic officer, a critical care paramedic and the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived, they found a man, who was the driver of the lorry in a critical condition, with bystander CPR already in progress.

“Crews took over treatment, with the critical care paramedic administering advanced life support to the patient. Unfortunately, despite the best efforts, nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead at the scene.”
