Jamie Arrowsmith – Monday 31st October 2022 – 8.00am.

A total of 15 patients were treated at the scene and taken to hospital following a multi-vehicle RTC on the M42 yesterday afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) was called to the southbound carriageway, between junctions 11 and 10, at 5.27pm and sent multiple resources to the scene, including four ambulances, two paramedic officers, the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Critical Care Car to the scene. East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) also sent resources to the scene, including three ambulances.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered multiple vehicles that had been in collision, with a large number of patients. The incident caused the motorway to be closed on both sides of the carriageway.

“In total, 15 patients were assessed and taken to hospital between WMAS and EMAS resources. Thankfully, it is not thought that any serious injuries were suffered.

“Three patients were transported to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, six to George Elliot Hospital, three to Nottingham University Hospital and three to Burton Queens Hospital.”
