A lorry driver has died following a collision involving two HGVs and two cars on the M6 this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the incident near to junction 3A on the southbound carriageway, shortly after 9.25am, and sent an ambulance, a paramedic area support officer and the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team to the scene. The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance also attended together with the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews discovered two HGVs and two cars that had been in collision in lane one of the motorway.

“The driver of one of the HGVs, a man, had suffered extremely serious injuries in the collision.

“Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The second lorry driver, also a man, was uninjured.

“One of the cars contained two men who were treated at the scene for minor injuries but they did not require hospital treatment.

“Neither did the driver of the second car, an elderly man, who was uninjured in the incident.”
