At least four killed in British motorway crash

4 Dead After Crash on M5 Motorway in Gloucestershire

Three others involved, believed to be a mother and two children, were in a critical condition in hospital last night after the pile-up.

The motorway is closed in both directions after the crash, which happened at about 2.30pm on Saturday.

Highways England stated there was six miles of traffic congested northbound of the closure, and two miles stretching southbound.

"People are helping as much as they can", he said. One auto was said to have been completely destroyed. Just seen the first ambulance leave the scene.

The M5 was closed in both directions and while diversions are in place, it is expected to remain closed until the early hours of the morning, authorities said.

Emergency services are at the scene of a serious crash on the M5 in South Gloucestershire.

He said drivers who had been stuck on the carriageway for a few hours were in effect "extremely supportive".

The most striking thing about the scene is the nearly complete silence here.

Another person wrote the lorry had crashed through the central reservation and drove off the road.

A representative stated: "We have 13 assets at the scene including the basic care group and the perilous range reaction group". I overheard one asking if any prayer support was needed.

Crisis administrations were called soon after 14:30 BST to intersections 15 and 14 in Gloucestershire. While others talk to police officers about the sadness of what has happened.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service sent six vehicles.

It included drivers the M4 wanting to join the M5 northbound were not able do as such.
