TWO people were taken to Stafford Hospital after an accident involving a car and a lorry on the M6 in Staffordshire this morning.

The collision on the northbound carriageway between junctions 13 and 14 blocked two lanes of the motorway for nearly two hours, and caused tailbacks to junction 11.

A senior paramedic officer with West Midlands Ambulance Service came across the incident shortly after 8.30 this morning. Two ambulance crews were assigned to attend. Another paramedic officer who was travelling along the motorway also stopped to help.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The northbound carriageway was partially blocked by the collision with long resultant tailbacks.
