A PILE-up on the M6 this morning left a man lying in the road with critical injuries after he was thrown from his vehicle.

A red DAF lorry, a white MAN lorry, a silver Ford Mondeo, a silver Mercedes saloon, a black VW Beetle and a white Toyota IQ2 collided south of Junction 2 at about 5.30am today (Thursday December 22).

The motorway, which was closed southbound for several hours, has now reopened.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said there was debris across both carriageways when ambulances arrived.

A man in his 40s was found lying semi-conscious in the southbound carriageway with multiple serious injuries. He was taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire where he is in a critical condition.

A man in his 30s suffered hand injuries and was taken to the same hospital.

Police would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the first crash, or saw any of the vehicles and the manner in which they were being driven. Call Warwickshire Police on 101 quoting incident 39 of December 22.
