Lorry driver seriously hurt as crash shuts part of M25 for 10 hours

Thursday 11th July 2019 16:15 BST

Motorists were stuck in long tailbacks of several miles after the M25 collision just before 5am on the clockwise section between junction nine for Leatherhead and junction 10 for Wisley.

The lorry driver suffered serious injuries in the crash and was taken to hospital by air ambulance.

The people in the two cars - a black cab and a red Citroen - were unhurt.

Police said part of the motorway was shut as emergency services cleared a large diesel fuel spillage.

The M25 section was reopened shortly before 3pm but one lane on the clockwise side remained closed while Highways England carried out repairs.

Officers from Surrey Police are appealing for anyone who witnessed the collision, or who may have dashcam footage before the collision, to get in touch.

:: Anyone with information should contact Surrey Police by calling 101 and quoting the reference number PR/P19155923.
