Police investigating a serious crash on the M6 that caused major traffic disruption earlier this week are appealing for witnesses.
The collision happened shortly after 6am on Monday when a milk tanker collided with a lorry on the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 35 and 34 near Carnforth. The milk tanker jack-knifed and collided with the central reservation causing debris to fall on to the northbound carriageway which then collided with a BMW saloon car causing minor damage. The tanker leaked fuel and milk out onto the carriageway and the articulated lorry shed its load of wooden floor panels.
The driver of the milk tanker, a 56 year old man, suffered serious injuries to his neck, spine, pelvis and legs and was airlifted to Royal Preston Hospital where he remains in a stable condition. The driver of the articulated lorry, a 50 year old man, suffered whiplash and cuts and bruises to his face and body.
Although the crash happened in Lancashire it caused major delays and disruption on the M6 in Cumbria.
The southbound carriageway was closed for 21 hours for a full examination of the scene, recovery of the vehicles and the clean-up operation, which included resurfacing work. It reopened at 3am on Tuesday 8 March.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting log 181 of 7 March.
Two serious crashes have completely closed the southbound carriageway of the M6 in south Cumbria and Lancashire leading to major traffic disruption.
The motorway is shut between junction 36 at Kirkby Lonsdale and junction 34 at Lancaster following the collisions this morning.
Police say the motorway is likely to be closed for most of the day.
The first incident occurred at around 4am and led to 300 litres of diesel leaking onto the road surface at junction 34 when a lorry struck the central reservation, rupturing its fuel tank. The lorry has been removed from the scene but the road requires resurfacing due to the diesel leak.
The second collision happened just after 6am, close to junction 35 at Carnforth, and involved three lorries. This incident also led to a large diesel spillage and the road will need to be resurfaced once the police investigation has been completed.
As well as the southbound carriageway being completely shut, the northbound carriageway is down to just one lane.
Motorists are advised to leave the M6 at junction 40 and travel southbound via the A66 and A1.
A diversion has also been set where drivers are asked to leave the M6 at junction 36 and take the A65 and A683 before re-joining the M6 at junction 34.
A stretch of the M6 at Penrith has reopened after cows closed the northbound carriageway.
At around 10am a Land Rover Discovery with a trailer full of cattle was involved in a crash with a Citroen Relay van, driven by a 32-year-old man from Birmingham.
Following the collision, in which neither driver was injured, cows got on to the carriageway.
A vet was called to the scene to check the animals and the motorway has now re-opened.
