Man seriously injured following M6 smash

A man has been seriously injured following a collision between a car and a lorry on the southbound M6 this morning.

A second man was also injured in the crash, which happened on the southbound M6 where it meets the M1.

“Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer, The Air Ambulance Service critical care car and the MERIT Trauma doctor were sent to the scene from West Midlands Ambulance Service along with resources from East Midlands Ambulance Service,” said West Midlands Ambulance Service.

“The small car had become trapped under the rear of the HGV.

“Ambulance staff worked with firefighters to pull the vehicle clear and provided treatment while the men, who were estimated to be in their 30’s were cut free from the wreckage.

“The front seat passenger had suffered multiple injuries and was anaesthetised at the scene before being taken by ambulance on blue lights to the Major Trauma Centre at University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire.

“The driver had suffered much less serious injuries and was dealt with by East Midlands Ambulance Service.
