A CAR overturned after its wheel was ripped off in a motorway smash early today.
The Mercedes 180 CDi ended up on its roof next to the central reservation after a collision with a tanker.
Other drivers stopped and helped to get the driver out.
He was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, but was not thought to be badly hurt.
The crash happened midway on the long uphill stretch between junction 25 at Brighouse and junction 24 at Ainley Top at 7am.
