The incident happened on the northbound carriageway at the Fradley Park junction at 11.10pm on Saturday (March 17).

Officers say a VW Polo had left the road, with emergency services having to cut a 28-year-old Burton man free from the vehicle.

A Staffordshire Police spokesperson said: “He was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment, and his condition is currently described as critical.

“The road was closed for several hours whilst detailed investigation work was carried out by officers from the Regional Collision Investigation Unit.
