M6 Closed After Lorry Falls and Traps Car

A lorry has tipped over on the M6, trapping a BMW underneath that was travelling in the same direction.

The lorry blocked all three lanes of the carriageway causing the road to be shut between junctions 28 and 29.

Both the driver of the BMW and the lorry escaped with only minor injuries, but both we reported to be shook up by the accident.

A spokesperson from the Lancashire police force said: “Recovery of the vehicles is taking place and we are hoping that the southbound carriageway will be open prior to the rush hour traffic.”
