There were two separate incidents on the M6

A man suffered serious injuries after a collision on the M6 yesterday (November 1).


A section of the M6 was closed for around four hours after the man, driving a Kia Ceed, collided with the central reservation just after junction 32 on the northbound carriageway.

A second car, a Mercedes A Class, then collided with the Kia and a 48-year-old man from Warcup suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the Kia, 68-years-old from Inverness, is at Royal Preston Hospital with chest and pelvic injuries. His condition is described as serious but stable.

Lancashire Constabulary is asking any witnesses to come forward.

Sgt Dave Hurst said: “We are still investigating what caused the Kia to go into the central reservation and so we need anyone who may have seen it to speak to us.

“We know it was a busy time of the day on the motorway and so someone must have seen something.”

If you have any information please email or call 101 quoting incident reference 1136 of November 1.

A second five-vehicle collision would later cause further delays on the M6.
