TRAFFIC on the motorway came to a standstill last night following a collision.

Police were called at around 9pm following reports of a collision on the northbound carriageway between Junction 37 and 38.

Upon arrival, officers found that the incident had blocked all three lanes of the motorway and that five vehicles were involved.

A spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police said: “The fire and ambulance service all attended and all three lanes had to be closed.

“Five people were thought to have received minor injuries.

“Highways England also attended to oversee removal of the vehicles so one lane could be reopened to traffic. This was done so by about 11pm.”
