Man seriously injured as car overturns on the M6 near Coventry

A MAN was seriously injured in a crash on the M6 in Coventry this morning in which a car left the carriageway and overturned.

Several 999 calls were placed with West Midlands Ambulance Service and crews arrived to find bystanders and an off-duty paramedic caring for the driver involved.

It happened just after 9am between Junctions 3A and 3 at Corley.

Two paramedic officers, an ambulance crew and the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance with a doctor and paramedic on board were sent to the scene.

The man was cut from the wreckage by firefighters and received trauma care at the scene before being taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency care.

The carriageway was reopened around 10.40am.
