Saturday 13th July 2013 – 1.10pm – Chris Kowalik.

A man has died and three people have been injured in a road traffic collision on the M6 in Staffordshire.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway between junctions 15 and 14 shortly after 9am today.

Four ambulance crews, a senior paramedic officer in a rapid response vehicle, a paramedic Area Support Officer in a rapid response vehicle and a BASICS Emergency doctor attended.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “It is believed three motorcycles were involved.

“Attempts were made to resuscitate a man who was riding one of the motorbikes both at the scene and en-route to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire. Unfortunately despite those best efforts, he was confirmed dead at hospital.

“His pillion passenger, a woman in her forties, had suspected shoulder and arm fractures. She was given immediate treatment for her injuries and pain relief was administered. She was taken to the same hospital.

“Two other men who complained of neck and back injuries were both immobilised with the use of spinal boards and neck collars and were taken to the same hospital.”
