An Irishman is fighting for his life after being hit by a truck on one of Britain's busiest motorways yesterday. 

In what is being described as a 'riddle accident', another Irishman, from Co. Wicklow has been arrested for criminal damage. 

According to the Irish Mirror, traffic police in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire arrived to find a man lying in a serious condition in the hard shoulder.

A police spokeswoman said:

"Just after 4.15am a pedestrian was in collision with a heavy goods vehicle close to Keele Services.
