    The motorway was closed for about five hours.


    The collision happened Southbound close to Junction 9.


    Sgt Martin Wilcock, of Tac Ops, said: “This collision has left a man with some very serious injuries and I would appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision itself, or the Mercedes in the moments beforehand, to get in touch. I would also appeal to anyone who has any dash cam footage to contact us.”
