THE SOUTHBOUND carriageway of the M5 motorway has been closed after the death of a man who was hit by a lorry.
The incident happened around 7.40am this morning (Monday) on the M5 between junction 5 (Droitwich) and junction 6 (Worcester).
West Midlands Ambulance Service confirmed it sent a rapid response vehicle, paramedic area support officer to the scene.
"On arrival, crews found a man and a lorry that had been in collision.
“Unfortunately it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed deceased at the scene,” a spokesperson added.
The closure of the carriageway, between the two junctions and the diversions have led to long queues and delays for morning commuters.
A spokeswoman from West Mercia Police has confirmed the force's death investigation team has attended the scene as well as fire and ambulance crews.
