Both the driver and passenger, a man and a woman, were transported to the hospital for medical treatment. The spillage of a significant amount of milk and diesel onto the carriageway necessitated its closure. Although the motorway remained shut for a considerable portion of the day, it has now been reopened. Lancashire Police have advised motorists to anticipate ongoing delays.


A spokesperson conveyed, “Traffic movement is projected to be slow and congested for an extended period, so it is advisable to avoid the area if possible.”
