A man has died after a crash involving two lorries and a van on the northbound carriageway.

The incident took place around 3.15pm on Monday at junction 5 at Droitwich.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found a van that had suffered severe damage after getting caught between the two lorries.

“Sadly, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the van driver and he was confirmed dead at the scene.

“The driver of the front lorry, a man in his 50s was assessed at the scene for knee pain and shock but was discharged.

“The 60-year-old driver in the rear lorry was assessed at the scene and taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital by ambulance with minor cuts and abrasions.”

The road has now reopened after resurfacing work overnight.
