M6 smash brings rush-hour delays.
MOTORISTS faced more traffic misery this morning after a lorry smash brought one of the busiest sections of the M6 grinding to a halt for the second time in a week.
The accident involved an HGV which collided with the central reservation at about 6am today between junction 3 and 4 southbound, near Corley services.
A lane on both carriageways had to be closed until the vehicle was recovered.
Motorist Tim Frings said: "I got stuck in really bad traffic around the Corley services area.
"I don't know how long the traffic will take to clear but there were delays when I was coming through at about 6.20am and it's usually pretty quiet then."
Drivers faced up to three-quarters of an hour delay while the carriageway was cleared but traffic was running comparatively smoothly by 8am.
The snarl-ups caused long tailbacks for motorists heading into and out of Coventry during the rush-hour this morning.
A spokesman from the Central Motorway Police said: "There was an accident that was cleared by 7.45am.
"Things were getting back to normal."
The hold-ups came a week after a driver died in a horrific three-lorry crash in almost exactly the same spot.
Police and fire crews worked to clear the 2am smash before rush-hour. There were long tailbacks as two lanes of the M6 were closed.
One lane was open by 8am but motorists on the M6 and M6 Toll faced heavy delays.
