M6 crash between lorry and car causes 11 MILE queues

Travellers are facing commuter hell this morning after a lorry and car crashed on a major motorway this morning.

Drivers are facing up to two hours of queueing in traffic on the M6 as the motorway is blocked for 11 miles.

Traffic has been queuing as far back as J2 for Coventry and the M69, reports Coventry Live.

Two lanes were closed between J3A (M42 north) to J4 (M42 south)/A446 Coleshill, but these have now reopened.

Despite this, traffic is still slow moving as the back-up clears.

Highways England said: "2 lanes remain closed on the #M6 in #Warwickshire northbound between J3A and J4 due to a collision involving a car and a HGV. The traffic was held briefly.

"Recovery are on scene. Please take care on approach."

Estimated travel time is an hour-and-a-half.
