One to hospital after lorry collision on M6

Jamie Arrowsmith – Thursday 13th January – 5.30pm.

A man has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after two lorries collided on the M6 this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident between junctions two and three at 2.03pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer, the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team, the West Midlands Care Team and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered two lorries that had suffered significant damage in the collision.

“In one of the vehicles, which had suffered front end damage, a man, who was the passenger, was found to be trapped as a result of the damage caused.

“Ambulance staff worked closely with colleagues from the fire service to free the man, a process which took more than two hours.

“He was treated for serious, but not thought to be life-threatening injuries, before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire by land ambulance.

“The two lorry drivers were uninjured in the incident and both managed to get themselves out of their vehicles. They were assessed and discharged at the scene.”
