Seven people injured following M6 lorry crash

Seven people were injured following a crash on the M6 near Coventry.

The crash occurred around 5.05pm between a minibus and a lorry yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon.

Two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance attended the scene.

“Crews arrived on scene to find a minibus with front end damage and a lorry with rear end damage. All eight occupants of the minibus were out of the vehicle and standing at the roadside,” said a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman.

“The most seriously injured patient was a 37-year-old man with a suspected fractured leg. He received treatment from ambulance staff before being carefully moved to the air ambulance, which had landed on the motorway, and flown to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“There were six more patients with minor injuries, all of whom were men. They were treated for knee, shoulder, leg, hand, arm and neck injuries before being transported to the same hospital by the two land ambulances.

“The driver of the lorry, a man, was uninjured in the incident.”
