Two Vehicle Collide Leaving One Of The Cars To Somersault.

Horrific Accident On M1 Motorway Causing Chaos

This is the moment that the motor accident between junctions 16 and 15 southbound on the M1 motorway was captured. Two cars collided leaving the Volvo XC60 on its roof. No one was seriously injured at the scene.

The accident happened at around 14:50 on Sunday 28th December 2018 when a lady driving a white hatchback lost control of her vehicle. It swerved across to the left hand side of the motorway, came back across it and hit the Volvo SUV which was travelling at speed before it came to a halt after slamming into the central reservation. The brown Volvo somersaulted, fell on its roof and span 360 degrees as the M1 motorway came to a standstill. 

There was a young lady (roughly in her twenties) who was the driver of the white hatchback while the Volvo XC90 was being driven by an elderly couple probably in their sixties.

The couple in the overturned Volvo managed to crawl out without any major injuries and were soon checked over by the paramedics who turn up within minutes. 

The Fire services and Police also turned up soon after, took all necessary details from witnesses and parties involved before clearing up and re-opening the roads.
