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.
