A pedestrian has suffered serious injuries following a collision with a van on the motorway this morning.

The M6 is currently closed in both directions between Junction 10 for Walsall/Wolverhampton and J11 for Cannock. The M54 is also closed eastbound from J1 to the M6.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a road traffic collision on the southbound carriageway of the M6, near to junction 10a, at 6.01am. Two ambulances, two paramedic officers and a MERIT trauma doctor attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival crews discovered two cars that had been involved in a collision. One of the drivers, a man, had then been involved in a second collision with a van, after he had got out of his car.

“He was treated for multiple serious injuries at the scene before being taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further treatment. The doctor travelled with the patient to help continue treatment en-route to hospital.

“Nobody else was injured in the incident.”

Traffic is backing up for over 7 miles, adding over an hours worth of delay to Friday morning commuters. Highways England expect normal traffic flow to resume round 14:00 this afternoon (Friday 3rd December). Local roads around Junction’s 10 & 11 are hugely congested, the M6 Toll in both directions seems to be flowing and coping.
