A CAR veered across four lanes of traffic on the M5 before crashing into the central reservation barrier.

The Nissan GT-R, travelling southbound near junction 5 at Wychbold, collided with the barrier before losing control.

Its 50-year-old driver was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham after the incident which happened at approximately 10am on Saturday (June 27).

West Mercia Police are appealing to those who might have been travelling on the motorway at the time, and may have seen the incident, to call them on 101 quoting 189S 270620.
