Man Hit While Stood On Hard Shoulder Of M6 – Taken To Hospital

‘Exceptional weather conditions’ have caused a serious collision on the M6, leaving one man in the hospital with major injuries.

According to reports, a Skoda collided with a man who had gotten out of his car after he was already involved in one collision.

He stood on the hard shoulder of the busy motorway, something Police always try to advise against, before another driver ran into him.

Several other incidents have been reported across the M6 due to terrible weather causing difficult driving conditions.

Sgt Steve Hardman, of Lancashire Police, said, ‘We are investigating a serious collision on the M6.

‘A number of vehicles were involved, with one man suffering serious injuries.

‘We are appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

‘We understand there were exceptional weather conditions during the time of the collisions and would ask anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.

‘Furthermore, if you helped to move any of the vehicles involved to the hard shoulder before police arrived, please get in touch.’

Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or email quoting log 0843 of January 16.
