Miracle escapes on M6 and M6 Toll after ‘serious crashes’

Motorists had lucky escapes following two ‘serious crashes’ on the M6 and M6 Toll.[1] Central Motorway Police Group shared images of the aftermath of two crashes on the West Midlands motorists.

One showed the crumpled wreckage of a convertible at a booth on the M6 Toll. Another vehicle was pictured next to the convertible, with its bonnet lifted up. CMPG said “amazingly (there were) minor injury only”.

The other crash which took place involved a lorry on the M6 southbound between Junction 10 and 10a. The HGV had collided with the central reservation, resulting in 100m of barrier being destroyed, police say.
