Monday 14th July 2014 – 7.30am – Claire Brown.

A man and a woman have died in a three car road traffic collision on the M42 in Worcestershire in the early hours of this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the northbound carriageway of the M42 between junctions 3 and 3a, near Beoley, shortly before 1.00am (Monday). Two ambulances, a paramedic area support officer and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The occupants of one car, a man and a woman, were both seriously injured and were in cardiac arrests.

“Sadly, despite attempts at advanced life support by ambulance crews and the medic, nothing could be done to save them and both were confirmed dead on scene.

“The driver of the second car, a man in his 50s, sustained a chest injury. He was extricated from the car with help from the fire service. The man was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch for further treatment.

“The driver of the third car was uninjured and didn’t require hospital treatment.”
