Paramedics called to two separate crashes on same stretch of M40

Leamington Editorial 22nd Sep, 2020   0

PARAMEDICS were called to two separate crashes on the same stretch of the M40 last night (Monday).

Four ambulances from West Midlands Ambulance Service were called to the M40 northbound between junctions 12 and 13, near Leamington at 11pm to a crash involving multiple vehicles.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found the driver of one HGV, a man, with serious injuries. Ambulance staff worked closely with fire service colleagues to carefully extricate him from the vehicle whilst he continued to receive trauma care from the team of ambulance staff. Once released, the man was taken by ambulance on blue lights to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further emergency care.

“The driver of a second HGV and the driver of a car were out of their vehicles and had suffered minor injuries. Both were taken to Warwick Hospital. The driver of a third HGV was discharged on scene.”




Shortly after midnight the service received a second call reporting a separate crash on the same stretch of the M40 northbound, just before Warwick Services.
