Man left with serious injuries following M6 crash involving two cars and two lorries

A MAN has been left with serious injuries following a crash on the M6 in Coventry this morning involving two lorries and two cars.

Four ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a medic on board attended the scene.

A car collided with the rear of a lorry, causing the driver of the car – a man in his 50s – to be trapped in the wreckage.

Ambulance staff and the medic administered treatment to the man while the fire service worked to extricate him from the car.

The man had suffered serious injuries and required advanced trauma care on scene before being taken by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

The doctor travelled on board to continue treatment en route.

A West Midlands Ambulance spokeswoman said: “The occupants of the two lorries and car were all out of their vehicles.

“One lorry driver, a man in his 40s, was discharged on scene.

“The second lorry driver, a man in his 30s, suffered leg pain and was given pain relief on scene before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The driver of the second car, a woman in her 30s, had back pain and was given analgesia by ambulance staff before she too was taken to the same hospital.

“Two young children and a man who were in the car with her were checked over by ambulance staff but were uninjured.”
