A stretch of the M18 near Doncaster was closed for several hours last night after a seven-vehicle pile up just over the border in Humberside.
Thorne fire crews helped get an injured man out of one of the cars after the multi-collision on the north-bound carriageway between Thorne and the M62 about 6pm.
Police closed the motorway in both directions from the M62 junction to Junction 6 at Thorne.
The Thorne firefighters were first on the scene and dealt with a man who had head injuries. It is not yet known how many other people were injured and the cause is still under investigation.
