There are no reports yet on the seriousness of the injuries.
Highways England have tweeted a picture of the accident:
A few minutes later they tweeted this:
The M4 Westbound Junction 13 to 14 is currently closed following an crash involving two HGV lorries.
All lanes Westbound between junction 13 at Chievely and 14 at Hungerford heading away from London are closed and a diversion is taking motorists off the carriageway at Junction 13.
It is likely to be closed for sometime for recovery. The Eastbound carriageway is currently full open.
The Government has approved an £860m scheme to remove the hard shoulder on the M4 and turn it into a running lane in Berkshire.
The decision was revealed by campaigners tonight following a letter sent to them by the Department for Transport.
It will be the biggest and most expensive road scheme the region has seen.
The entire section between Hayes, near Heathrow and junction 12 at Theale will be converted - the longest section of so-called Smart Motorway in the country.
The Government say it will reduce congestion. But campaigners have expressed anger.
