Man 'seriously injured' after multi-car collision on M5 

A man has been seriously injured after a multi-car crash on the M5 this morning (8th Oct).

The collisions forced emergency crews to close the northbound carriageway between Junctions 3 and 2 for much of the morning. 

West Midlands Ambulance Service sent out three ambulances and a trauma team after receiving an emergency call just before 6am.

On arrival, crews discovered two patients and multiple vehicles that had been involved in the incident.

One of the patients, a man, was found to be in a serious condition. Ambulance staff administered specialist trauma care to him, before he was transported to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, on blue lights and sirens.
