Driver cut free after lorry veers off the M6 in Lancashire
3:34pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
A LORRY driver was taken to hospital with minor head injuries after his vehicle veered off the motorway.
The 52-year-old man was heading southbound on the M6 at around 7.40am yesterday morning when his truck left the road. The Eddie Stobart HGV plummeted 50 metres down an embankment and came to a stop in a copse of trees between junction 29 and 30.
Firefighters cut the man out of the cab and he was taken to Royal Preston Hospital where his condition was not believed to be serious.
Blackburn station manager, Julian Williams, tweeted dramatic pictures from the scene. One showed the battered Eddie Stobart cab, with its windscreen was broken and the roof dented.
