Car overturns on a northbound carriageway causing chaos

The serious accident occurred at around 5.30pm when a transit van flipped over on a busy road during rush hour. It is not known at this stage if there are any other parties involved in the accident.

The crash caused the road to be closed allowing for an Air ambulance crew to land close to the scene to allow for the van driver to be transported to hospital.

Police said at the time of the incident: “An air ambulance has landed nearby and paramedics are treating the van driver for his injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.

“There is a large amount of debris in the road as well, and it will take some time for the Highways Agency to clear.

“Please bear with the emergency services while we try to clear the road.”

Air ambulance crews treated the 50-year-old transit van driver and transported him to the nearest trauma unit.
