Officers from the Staffordshire and West Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for witnesses after a serious road traffic collision on the M6 southbound carriageway this morning (Friday 3 December).
Two cars – a silver Vauxhall Astra and a silver Renault Clio – were initially involved in a collision on the northbound carriageway, near to junction 10a, at approximately 6am. One of the drivers, a man, was then involved in a second collision with a van on the southbound carriageway.
The man was taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital with serious injuries.
No-one else was injured.
Witnesses who may have seen the Vauxhall Astra travelling north before the collision or anyone with relevant dashcam footage to message Staffordshire Police on Facebook or Twitter quoting incident number 79 of 3 December or call 101. Alternatively, email the team direct at [email protected]
We would remind people not to speculate as to the cause of the collision or comment inappropriately as this is a live on-going police investigation.
