Man arrested after Corsa collides with barrier on M6 Toll
Main article content
A man has been arrested after a Vauxhall Corsa collided with a barrier on the M6 Toll yesterday (30 January).
We got a call just after 11.50pm after someone saw the car come into collision on the southbound carriageway.
Officers went to the scene and closed the road straight away.
A woman in her late teens, who was a passenger in the car when it happened, was taken to hospital by West Midlands Ambulance Service. Her injuries aren’t thought to be life-threatening or life-changing at this time.
A 21-year-old man, of no fixed address, who we think was driving the car, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and drug driving.
He is being questioned about what happened in custody today (31 January).
The toll road was kept shut overnight. It has since been re-opened today and we’d like to thank people for their patience and understanding in the area following a period of disruption.
Anyone who saw the collision or those with dashcam footage of the area at the time are asked to get in touch with us. Call 101, quoting incident 783 of 30 January, or message us using Live Chat on our website.
