Motorway chaos after acid spill.
The accident on the northbound carriageway blocked the motorway for more than five hours as police set up diversions. Traffic caused traffic chaos on the nearby A38.
Two people from the car were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries shortly after 11.30am when the accident happened.
The acid was contained in a small area and cleaned up by fire crews.
A spokesman for Hereford and Worcester Police said: "The acid would burn skin if protective clothing was not being worn and if it got into water it would kill fish."
