crash delays traffic on M5 at Burnham-On-Sea
services were called to a three-vehicle accident on the M5 motorway
near Burnham-On-Sea this afternoon (Saturday, July 16th).
Two lanes of the northbound carriageway near junction 22 at Burnham
were blocked by the crash, which occurred at 12.35pm.
A fire spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Crews got to
work to remove the roof of one vehicle. Six adults and one infant
were involved in the incident and fire crews assisted paramedics
at the scene."
"By 1.27pm all casualties were released from the vehicles
and in the hands of ambulance crews on the scene."
Two fire engines from Bridgwater and a rescue tender from Taunton
attended the incident which - for a second day running - led to
long delays for motorists in the Burnham area.
