Two people had a lucky escape following a collision on the M5 this morning.
A Land Rover collided with a Ford Transit van near Bridgwater at around 8.55am.
The Land Rover overturned several times and collided with a safety barrier on the other side of the carriageway.
A 60-year-old woman, who was driving the Land Rover, and a man who was in the passenger seat, have been taken to hospital for treatment. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
This was a very lucky escape for the occupants of the Land Rover, as the safety barrier did its job and stopped the vehicle from plunging down a vertical drop of about 160ft.
