A motorist has been taken to hospital after their vehicle towing a trailer full of hay overturned at speed on the M62 near Huddersfield causing long delays.
Motorway police are on the scene following the accident between junction 22 at Rishworth Moor and 21 at Milnrow on the westbound carriageway at about 9.30am today.
Lanes two and three have been closed after the vehicle ended up on its roof in the outside lane.
Officers from the North West Motorway Police unit have confirmed the driver suffered cuts to his head after losing control of the trailer, which flipped over.
A recovery vehicle has now arrived at the scene to remove the overturned vehicle and it is hoped that normal traffic conditions will resume at about noon.
