SEVEN people, including children, were rushed to hospital after the 4x4 they were in overturned on the M5.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called at 3:23pm yesterday (Sunday, August 9) between junctions 6 and 5 of the M5 in Droitwich after a seven-seater 4x4 towing a caravan had overturned.

The Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended, along with the Critical Care Car, four land ambulances and two paramedic officers.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived, they found the 4x4 which was believed to have rolled up to three times before landing on its roof. The occupants of the vehicle claimed the caravan started to sway on the carriageway, causing the car to spin and rollover.

“In total, crews treated seven patients including three children. Thankfully, the three men, woman and three boys were all treated for injuries not believed to be serious and were taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital by land for further treatment.”
