A CAR ended up under the central reservation of the M5 motorway following a collision on the southbound carriageway at 5.55am this morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene after the collision between Junction 4a (the M42) and 5 (Droitwich).

Two people were hurt in the crash – a female passenger in her 30s in the first car was assessed by West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedics and was taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment on injuries not thought to be serious.

The man – who was also from the first car and is in his 20s – was assessed for minor injuries, given self-care advice and discharged at the scene.

The motorway was blocked southbound causing a large build-up of traffic but all lanes were reopened shortly after 8.15am once the vehicles involved in the collision were safely removed from the scene.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is urged to call 101 or visit the force’s website, quoting incident 056i of 1 December, 2021 or report it online via our website
