SEVEN people including children have been blue-lighted to hospital after their 4x4 overturned on the M5. 

Three men, one woman and three young boys were taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital yesterday after their seven-seater towing a caravan overturned between junctions 5 and 6. 

The West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to the scene at 3.23pm yesterday (Sunday).

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.

"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.”
