Dead After Crash on M5 Motorway in Gloucestershire

Dead After Crash on M5 Motorway in Gloucestershire

The lorry driver was taken to clinic to be looked at as a precautionary measure.

Emergency services were called just after 14:30 BST to junctions 15 and 14 in Gloucestershire.

Dr Hamed added: "People are helping as much as they can".

The motorway remains closed in both directions and drivers have been asked to avoid the area, while Avon and Somerset Police said it would remain shut "for a considerable amount of time".

Local reports said rescue crews attempting to reach the scene became stuck in traffic after motorists tried to escape the gridlock by driving the wrong way up the hard shoulder. One vehicle was said to have been completely destroyed.

"A few people offered us water and one man left his auto to give nourishment".

"Something must have happened and the lorry came across and suddenly the cars stopped", said Katie Sultana, an eyewitness.

The last subject of Queen Victoria - dies in Jamaica aged 117
Clearly longevity runs in the family as she passed away with her 97-year-old son by her side, they shared the home together. Brown told them it was still a little "like slavery" and was hard, but little by little Jamaica had become a good place.

South Western Ambulance Service Trust told The Sun Online, 13 ambulances and two critical care team were working at the scene.

We were called at just after 2.30pm to the collision between J14 and J15 involving several vehicles including a lorry.

He was one of the first at the scene alongside a passing GP and different doctors to help a harmed lady who was in one of the autos. "Multiple #EmergencyServices #pray for people involved".

If you are stuck in the closure on the northbound carriageway the delay is likely to be another three to four hours before Highways England can safely get you off the motorway.

The lorry that has slammed has hit what M5 workers will know as a well-known historic point, a windsock beside the street.

"Early expectation is that the M5 will remain closed in both directions late into this evening".
