Serious Crash On The M11 In Harlow
A woman remains in a serious condition in hospital, following a five vehicle crash on the M11 at Harlow.
It happened on the southbound carriageway between Junction 7 and 6 just before 1pm yesterday afternoon (January 3rd). The stretch of road was shut for around six hours.
Police, fire and ambulance crews, including the helicopter, were all called to the scene. Firefighters had to use specialist cutting equipment to free two people who were trapped.
Eight people were taken to the Royal London, Whipps Cross and Basildon Hospitals for treatment. Seven of them have been released, while the woman is being treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries
Police say investigations indicate that the crash occurred in slow moving traffic on the approach to the slip road of the M11 just prior to junction six with the M25. There was an initial collision between a Nissan Micra and a Skoda Octavia, before a Volkswagen Passat then collided with a Ford Mondeo and a Ford Fusion.
Officers at the Chigwell Road Policing Unit are appealing for any witnesses to this serious collision to contact them on 101.
