MOTORISTS are being urged to take care when driving in the current weather conditions.

Officers from the Operational Policing Unit (OPU) posted the above picture of a crash which happened at Junction 4a at 11.30am.

The ambulance service were initially called but the crew was stood down when it was deemed it was not needed – the driver had a lucky escape.

The police want to warn people to slow down and adjust their driving to the conditions.

There are currently yellow weather warnings in place for wind and rain across much of the country which can prove hazardous as people embark on their journeys.

There was a three-vehicle crash between Junctions 7 (Worcester) and 6 (Droitwich)at 6.55am where one car ended up in the central reservation.

 

A man and a woman were treated on scene for minor injuries before being taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital for further assessment.
