Woman and two children injured in M6 collision

Thursday 31st March 2016 – 9.00pm – Claire Brown.

A collision involving multiple cars and a lorry has left a woman and two children in hospital this evening.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 6 and 5 in b just before 5.00pm today (Thursday). Three ambulances and two paramedic area support officers attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “Upon arrival ambulance staff had 11 patients in need of assessment.

“The most seriously injured was a boy, believed to be seven, who had sustained a suspected head injury. Ambulance staff administered treatment to the boy and immobilised him with a neck collar and spinal board before he was taken by land ambulance on blue lights to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

“A woman, in her 40s, was trapped in her vehicle and ambulance staff worked with the fire service to extricate her from the car. She sustained neck pain and was immobilised with a neck collar and spinal board as a precaution before being taken to Heartlands Hospital. Ambulance staff also treated and immobilised a 12-year-old girl as a precaution and she was taken to Good Hope Hospital.

“The remaining patients involved in the collision were assessed but didn’t require hospital treatment and were discharged on scene.”
