West Midlands Ambulance Service can confirm it was called to a crash on the M6 South bound, between junction 1 and Catthorpe at around 10.50am this morning.

An ambulance, a paramedic officer, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, a response car from WNAA and also an ambulance from East Midlands Ambulance Service attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find two HGV’s, a van and a car that are believed to have been in a serious collision.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save one of the lorry drivers who had been injured in the crash, and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The second lorry driver, a man believed to be in his 50’s, received treatment at the scene but did not require further hospital treatment.

“The woman travelling in the car, believed to be in her 40’s, suffered neck injuries and received treatment at the scene.  She was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar and transferred by land ambulance to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire.

“The occupant of the van was uninjured in the crash.”
