'At least four dead' after M5 crash

At least four people have been killed in a horror crash involving a lorry which is believed to have smashed through the central reservation near Almondsbury in south Gloucestershire

I pulled the woman, who I believe is a doctor, out of the vehicle and she was given two pints of blood on the side of the road before she was taken to hospital.

South Western Ambulance Service Trust say a critical care team and a dozen ambulances are the scene of the crash dealing with the wounded.

The lorry driver was taken to clinic to be looked at as a precautionary measure.

In a statement, Somerset and Avon Police said: "A multi-agency operation is under way on the M5 in South Gloucestershire following a serious collision".

"Sadly, at least four people have died", police said.

Highways England says traffic is trapped for around five miles.

A number of diversions are in place.

He told The BBC: "There was a lorry involved and at least two other cars".

Deaths at Florida Nursing Home after Irma
Older people can be more susceptible to heat because their bodies do not adjust to temperatures as well as young people. The state's nursing home association said it tirelessly advocated help for its members before and after the storm.

Major crashes involving multiple fatalities are relatively uncommon in Britain but eight people died in August when two trucks and a minibus collided at the start of a busy bank holiday weekend. "One auto was completely destroyed, nearly like there was only half a vehicle left with what looked like somebody trapped inside".

Two motorists who were travelling...

Witnesses reported seeing people lying by the side of the road as members of the public helped pull survivors from wrecked cars, with some performing first aid.

"A few people offered us water and one man left his auto to give nourishment".

If you are stuck in the closure on the northbound carriageway the delay is likely to be another three to four hours before Highways England can safely get you off the motorway.

The most striking thing about the scene is the nearly complete silence here.

"There are now 13 ambulances at the scene including a critical care team".

The lorry that has slammed has hit what M5 workers will know as a well-known historic point, a windsock beside the street. While others converse with cops about the misery of what has happened.
