Three lanes were closed on the M25 motorway near Surrey and London, causing major traffic disruption. The closures were due to a vehicular accident that resulted in a collision between multiple cars and a lorry.
The incident occurred in the early hours of the morning, during the rush hour. The collision caused significant damage to the vehicles involved and resulted in several injuries.
Emergency services rushed to the scene to provide medical assistance to the injured and to clear the wreckage. The closure of three lanes caused congestion and delays for commuters traveling in both directions.
Motorists were advised to seek alternative routes or to allow for extra travel time due to the extensive traffic. As a result, many drivers were forced to find alternative routes through surrounding towns and villages.
The police investigation into the accident is ongoing and it is expected to take some time before the lanes are reopened. Authorities are urging drivers to exercise caution and to adhere to speed limits and traffic regulations to avoid further accidents.
