Biker dies after M6 crash that saw multiple 999 crews attend

A motorbike rider died at the scene after being involved in a collision with a lorry this morning (May 18). The crash happened at 8.15am on the M6[1] southbound carriageway between junctions 10 and 10a.

Multiple emergency services attended the scene. A paramedic officer, a BASICS doctor and critical care paramedic, two ambulances and the Midlands Air Ambulance raced to the area, but nothing could be done to save him.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service[2] told BirminghamLive:[3] "On arrival, crews discovered a motorbike and a lorry had been involved in a collision and the motorcyclist, a man, was in a critical condition. Ambulance staff immediately began administering advanced life support but sadly, despite everyone’s best efforts, it became apparent that he could not be saved and was confirmed dead at the scene."

Junction 10 was closed for five hours following the crash as investigators worked at the scene. It has now reopened.
