Live updates – One lane blocked after the driver was trapped for three hours after a three-lane M6 accident in Staffordshire

Full statement from West Midlands Ambulance Service

A spokesman for the West Midlands Ambulance Service said: “When ambulance personnel arrived at the scene, they found three trucks that had suffered significant damage in the collision. There were three patients, drivers of each vehicle. One of them, a man, was essentially trapped as resulting from the damage to his vehicle.

“The ambulance staff worked closely with colleagues from the fire department to cut him free, a process that took about three hours.

“Crews constantly monitored the man’s condition throughout, and when they were free, they treated him for injuries that are not believed to be serious before transporting him to Walsall Manor Hospital by land ambulance.

“Another man was assessed and discharged on the spot, while the third patient did not want to be assessed.”
