‘Severe delays’ after vehicle overturns on M5 Northbound

Two appliances from Bridgwater together with one appliance from Taunton were called to reports of a road traffic collision on the M5 Northbound between Junctions 24 Huntworth and 23 Dunball at 10:48 this morning (Friday).

Upon arrival crews confirmed one vehicle on its roof.

The occupants were out of the vehicle but were suffering from shock following the incident.

Police were on scene and had closed lanes two and three.

Crews got to work to make the vehicle safe and administering oxygen to the occupant of the vehicle.

Air ambulance and Highways were also in attendance.

Highways England have since confirmed all lanes are now open and severe delays from Junction 26 will take time to clear.
