A man and woman have died after a crash involving three cars on the M42 in Worcestershire in the early hours of this morning.
Ambulance crews were called to Northbound carriageway at Junction 3 near Beoley, shortly before 1.00am.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said:
The occupants of one car, a man and a woman, were both seriously injured and were in cardiac arrests. Sadly, despite attempts at advanced life support by ambulance crews and the medic, nothing could be done to save them and both were confirmed dead on scene.
The driver of the second car, a man in his 50s, sustained a chest injury. He was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch for further treatment. The driver of the third car was uninjured and didn’t require hospital treatment.”
There are currently delays of more than an hour and a half on the Motorway as crash investigation work takes place.
