THE DRIVER of a heavy goods vehicle was extremely fortunate not to have been seriously injured after overturning his lorry in a crash on the motorway this morning.
The crash occurred on the M40 northbound near junction 12 and the Warwick Services at around 10.15am.
The lorry left the motorway, travelled down an embankment and smashed through a fence before it ended up overturned in a field.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The lorry driver, a man in his 40’s, had got himself out of the lorry and received treatment at the scene for minor injuries including a laceration to his back.
“He was transferred by ambulance to Warwick Hospital for further treatment.
“Considering the nature of the crash and the damage to the HGV the driver was extremely lucky not to have suffered more serious or even fatal injuries.”
