TWO HGVs COLLIDE ON M6 Friday 25th August 2017 – 2.12pm

Friday 25th August 2017

Location: M6, Junctions 15 and 16

Date and time: Aug 25, 2:12 PM, 2017

Two lorry drivers have been treated by ambulance staff and taken to hospital after their vehicles collided on the northbound carriageway of the M6 this afternoon.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident between junctions 15 and 16 at 2.12pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The most seriously injured patient, a man believed to be in his 40s, was still inside his vehicle when crews arrived.

“He was assessed, and once out of his cab, treated for a suspected leg fracture and minor injuries to his face. He was immobilised and given pain relief before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital by land ambulance.

“The driver of the second lorry, also a man thought to be in his 40s, was out of his vehicle. He was treated for arm and back pain, immobilised and taken to the same hospital by land ambulance.”
