Motorway car crash news

Passenger airlifted following M6 crash

The driver of a Citroen was lucky to walk away from the wreckage of her vehicle following a potentially fatal motorway car crash near Preston.

The motorway car crash occurred when the woman's vehicle collided with a heavy goods vehicle between junctions 30 and 31 on the northbound M6.

Immediately following the collision, the woman's car flipped several times across the motorway before coming to a standstill on the central reservation.

Staggeringly, the driver was able walk from her vehicle unassisted. However, her female passenger had to be cut free from the wreckage and airlifted to Royal Preston Hospital, where she was treated for neck and head injuries.

A Highways Agency spokesperson said of the motorway car crash, "The car rolled over into the central reservation and ended up with its front end in the air.

"The driver had minor injuries and managed to walk out, but the passenger had suffered a head injury. Police shut off lanes three and four of the northbound M6 and the fourth lane of the southbound side for around 90 minutes while the accident was cleared, sparking tailbacks as far back as Chorley on the M61."

It is not known whether the injured woman will seek to make a passenger injury compensation claim.
