Crash on M6 at Lymm hits traffic
2:00pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
The M6 at Lymm interchange has been opened again following a collision like something from a Hollywood film.
Both carriageways were shut following the incident at 10.55am today, Friday.
Police say a Ferrari travelling on the northbound carriageway between Lymm and Knutsford crashed into the back of an Audi.
The Audi then hit the central reservation flying onto the other side of the motorway.
It became airborne and went over the top of a Vauxhall Astra travelling in the opposite direction on the southbound carriageway.
The Audi then collided with a lorry.
The male driver of the Audi was trapped and fire crews had to remove the vehicle’s roof.
He has been taken to Leighton Hospital, according to North West Ambulance Service.
It is not yet clear the extent of any injuries, althought they are not thought to be serious.
A man and woman were in the Ferrari, with the female passenger also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
The lorry driver and three people in the Vauxhall Astra are believed to be unharmed, according to officers.
All lanes are now open again on the M6, although there remains congestion leading onto the M62 at Croft interchange.
Delays of around an hour are expected.
Anyone with information can call police on 101.
