A CRASH on the M42 near Redditch has left two people dead and another injured.

The incident involved three cars on the northbound carriageway of the motorway between junctions 3 and 3a near Beoley about 1am on Monday (July 14).

A man and a woman travelling in the same car were seriously injured.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "Sadly, despite attempts at advanced life support by ambulance crews and the medic, nothing could be done to save them and both were confirmed dead on scene."

The driver of the second car had to be cut free by firefighters. The man, believed to be in his 50s, sustained a chest injury and was taken to the Alexandra Hospital for further treatment.

The driver of the third car was uninjured.

The northbound carriageway of the motorway was closed by the Highways Agency and is not expected to re-open until 10am at the earliest. Delays of over an hour are being reported on the motorway and surrounding roads.
