Paramedics were called to reports of a three vehicle crash on the M6 northbound, between junctions two and three, at around 4.15pm this afternoon.

The incident has caused major rush hour tailbacks around the city.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: "Crews arrived to find two cars and a lorry that are believed to have been in a collision. One car had struck the barrier and one had overturned.

"The woman driving the car that had overturned suffered neck and back pain, and also a laceration to the head.

"The woman, in her 40s, received treatment at the scene and was immobilised using a spinal board and neck collar.

"She was transferred to University Hospital for further treatment.

"A woman driving the car that struck the barrier, believed to be in her late 30s, suffered neck pain and was treated at the scene. After treatment she did not require hospital treatment.

"No-one else was injured in the crash."

Two ambulances, a rapid response vehicle and a paramedic officer attended the scene.
