Overturned vehicle responsible for M6 delays.

An overturned vehicle between the southbound entry of Junction 31A towards Junction 32, caused delays of more than an hour yesterday evening (Tuesday 25th).

The crash took place around 4:30pm, with Highways England managing to right the car and get it across to the hard shoulder.

Three people in the car were treated for minor injuries and a driver of a truck, which was also involved, was reported for driving offences.

Built up traffic almost reached Junction 33 and caused the M55 to become gridlocked.

The crash also caused a knock-on effect on the roads in Fulwood and Broughton.

Thankfully, traffic returned to normal just before 7pm and all lanes were reopened.
