Major traffic problems on the M53 in Cheshire were due to a serious accident involving a woman driver who became trapped in her vehicle.

Local fire and rescue from Chester were called and cut the woman from the vehicle. Despite the serious nature of the accident it is reported that the woman was treated at Hospital for minor injuries.

Accidents such as this are very common but fortunately this local driver having sustained minor road traffic accident injuries will make a quick recovery.

As local injury law experts we are familiar with this stretch of motorway and dealing with the aftermath of accident along this notorious highway. Recent traffic calming measures have helped but more needs to be done to constantly monitor and improve safety on this very busy motorway.

This driver had a lucky escape but it seems only a matter of time before more serious motorway accidents happen in this location.
