Woman and two kids fight for life after lorry ploughs into oncoming motorway traffic and kills four people

A woman and two children are fighting for their lives in hospital after a fatal motorway crash that killed four people.

At least two cars were hit by a lorry when it left the southbound carriageway of the M5, careered through the central reservation and ploughed into traffic in the northbound side.

The lorry driver survived and was taken to hospital to be checked over.

The M5 was closed in both directions following the fatal collision between J15 and J14 northbound in Gloucestershire but cops praised the actions of quick-thinking motorists who went to the aid of crash victims.

The scene on the M5 motorway after the fatal crash

Supt Simon Ellis, of Avon and Somerset Constabulary , said: "We've been co-ordinating a multi-agency operation following this horrific col lision on the M5 earlier today.

"Emergency service personnel have been working tirelessly at the scene in harrowing conditions and I'd like to praise them for the work they've done and are still doing.

"I'd also like to thank the members of the public who courageously went to the aid of those involved in this collision and in some cases rescued them from their vehicles.

"Our priority is to ensure the victims' next of kin are notified and supported, as well as the ongoing management of the scene, and this important work is ongoing.

The motorway was closed in both directions following the fatal crash in which four people died

"The M5 remains closed in both directions between J16 and 14. 'Trapped' traffic is being cleared slowly via one lane of the northbound carriageway.

"The southbound carriageway between these junctions is clear of 'trapped& #039; traffic and diversions are in place in both directions.

"We know this has been extremely disruptive to many people but we've had to prioritise the rescue and recovery operation and ensure we carry out a thorough investigation at the scene.

"This is painstaking work."
