'At least four dead' after M5 crash

'At least four dead' after M5 crash

The force said: "Four people are believed to have died and a number of others have been taken to hospitals in the Bristol area".

"The closure is likely to be in place for a considerable amount of time and we'd ask people to avoid the area".

The crash occurred between Junction 16 for Aztec West, and Junction 14 for Thornbury in south Gloucestershire.

Huge queues built up behind the crash scene after the motorway was closed in both directions.

There are also three miles of "trapped traffic" within the police cordon, it added.

It is the second fatal crash on the same stretch of the M5 this week. Just seen the first ambulance leave the scene. "One vehicle was completely destroyed, nearly like there was only half a auto left with what looked like somebody trapped inside".

"A few people offered us water and one man left his auto to give nourishment".

The most striking thing about the scene is the nearly complete silence here.

Another person wrote the lorry had crashed through the central reservation and drove off the road. While others talk to police officers about the sadness of what has happened.

"The woman and the children are in a critical condition", said the witness.

Avon Fire & Rescue Service sent six appliances and its Major Rescue Tender to the scene.

Interstates England said the "early desire" is that the M5 "will stay shut in the two bearings late into tonight".

The M5 is still closed northbound between J16 and 14.
