Van driver seriously injured

Murray MacGregor – Monday 5th July 2021 – 8.00am.

A van driver has suffered serious injuries after an incident involving the van and two lorries.

It happened at just before 3.30am this morning (Monday) on the northbound M6 motorway between the slip roads at junction eleven.

An ambulance, two paramedic officers and the MERIT trauma doctor and critical care paramedic were sent to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found the van on it’s side and a lorry facing the wrong way.  Ambulance staff were told that the second lorry had rear end damage.

“The van driver was rapidly extricated by ambulance and fire crews and assessed on the ambulance.

“He was treated at the scene but his condition was sufficiently serious that he was taken on blue lights to the major trauma centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham with the doctor and critical care paramedic travelling with the ambulance; medics were on standby at the hospital to receive him.

“Neither of the lorry drivers were injured.”
