The 4x4 car was towing a caravan on the motorway in Worcestershire when it overturned and ended up on its roof on Sunday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the motorway, between junctions 5 and 6 near Droitwich, at around 3.20pm.

It followed reports that a seven-seater 4x4 towing a caravan had overturned on the busy stretch of the motorway.

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

Three men, a woman and three boys were assessed at the scene and taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further treatment.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman 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.”
