THREE people were trapped in three separate cars after a crash on the M40 last night closed the motorway for several hours.
There were long tailbacks while emergency services dealt with the crash that took place just before Junction 16 (Henley-in-Arden) on the northbound carriageway around 6.20pm.
The motorway was closed between Stratford-upon-Avon and Henley, and was not reopened until around 11pm.
A Warwickshire Police spokesperson said the crash involved four vehicles, a black Mazda saloon, a blue BMW 520 saloon, a Ford Focus hatchback, and a SsangYong Korando 4x4 crossover.
“During the collision one of the vehicles crashed into the central reservation,” said the spokesperson.
Three people were left trapped in their vehicles and so at 6.40pm firefighters were called to the scene to cut them free.
It took crews around an hour and a half to release all the casualties.
A man in his 50s was put on a spinal board and neck collar as a precaution and taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch. A second man was also taken to the Alexandra Hospital but both were in a stable condition.
A third man, in his 40s, was discharged at the scene.
