Salisbury woman hurt in M4 crash
A DRIVER from the Salisbury area is being treated for life threatening injuries following a four vehicle crash on the M4 early this morning. The crash happened at 12.20am between junction 15 and Membury Services.
A blue Ford Transit van lost control and overturned in the carriageway and shortly afterwards a black Audi stopped nearby.
The occupants of both vehicles were believed to have been standing at the side of the road when a car transporter crashed into them and their vehicles.
The Audi driver, a 32-year-old woman from the Salisbury area, was airlifted to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol along with a passenger from the van, who also suffered serious injuries.
The van driver sustained minor injuries and he was taken by ambulance to the Great Western Hospital in Swindon.
The driver of the car transporter was arrested at the scene for causing serious injuries by dangerous driving and he remains in police custody at Gablecross Police Station.
The driver of an articulated lorry, which was damaged as a result of the collision, was uninjured. The motorway was closed in both directions to allow officers to examine the scene.
Two lanes of the westbound carriageway were later opened to traffic but the eastbound lane remained closed throughout the night for the investigation to be carried out. The road was fully reopened at midday today after the vehicles had been recovered. Witnesses are asked to contact PC Alan Hunt of Wiltshire Police’s Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
