FOUR PEOPLE were taken to hospital following the seven-vehicle crash on the M5 on Monday (December 3).

The incident took place between junction six and junction five northbound and involved a lorry, which spilled its load, a van and five cars.

Two of the drivers had to be cut from their cars by the fire service which sent six crews and two officers to the collision.

In total eight patients were assessed by ambulance staff – four were released at the scene while the other four – three men and a woman – were taken to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment and treatment.

The carriageway was shut while the emergency services worked at the scene and two lanes southbound were also closed.

Michael Cadman from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service praised the ‘significant effort by all agencies which reduced the impact on the community and meant there were no significant casualties.
