A man who ended up trapped in the cab of his lorry for 50 minutes following a collision with a HGV miraculously walked away with just minor injuries.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the M6 between junctions 14 and 13 in Stafford shortly after midnight this morning.
When crews arrived they found a lorry with significant front end damage which had left the driver, a man in his 40s, trapped inside his cab due to the wreckage.
Upon assessment the man was fully conscious but was trapped by his legs by the dash and steering wheel. Ambulance staff and the medic worked closely with the fire service to cut the man out of the wreckage.
After around 50 minutes the man was able to get out of the cab unaided. Remarkably, he had suffered no serious injuries but, as a precaution due to the mechanism of the collision, ambulance staff conveyed him by ambulance to Royal Stoke University Hospital for a full check-up.
The M6 Northbound entry slip road is closed due to an accident at J11 A460 (Cannock).
There is no access onto the Northbound carriageway from the island above the motorway due to accident on the A460.

In a statement, North Staffordshire Clinical Commissioning Group said:
Our priority is to ensure that any child receives the NHS care and treatment that is clinically appropriate for their needs.
We would encourage the family to contact us if they need any support in applying for private physiotherapy.
