Traffic was queued for more than five miles along the M5 motorway on Monday (August 21st) after a serious accident at the Burnham-On-Sea junction.
Police and paramedics rushed to the southbound sliproad at 6.10am after a car flipped over onto its roof after colliding with the central reservation.
A police spokeswoman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “The driver of the vehicle, a male, was taken to Weston General Hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.”
Debris was strewn across several lanes of the motorway, leaving police to close two for over an hour.
“It caused a lot of problems for motorists during the busy rush hour period,” added the spokeswoman.
