Nine people left injured following a collision between a car and a taxi minibus crashed near Heaton Park.

A woman had to be cut free by fire crews after her Ford Ka was in a crash with a Peugeot Expert at the junction of Bury Old Road and Scholes Lane in Prestwich just before 5pm today.

North West Ambulance Service said it took eight people to three different hospitals.

The driver of the car was taken to Salford Royal hospital with a suspected broken leg and a bruised chest.

A second woman was also taken to Salford Royal and doctors in the A&E were placed on standby.

Four people were taken to Fairfield Hospital and two were taken to North Manchester General Hospital.

Six ambulances and a hazardous area response team were sent to the scene, along with three fire engines and a number of police vehicles.

The junction was closed while police dealt with the incident and has now reopened.

Claims if you have been involved in a motorway collision

Traffic collisions involving multiple vehicles can be very serious, even more so if you are travelling at speed on a busy motorway, so if you believe that you have been affected by this you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is important that whenever you make a claim that you are able to prove that another person is at fault for your injuries, because otherwise you will find that your chances of success will diminish in a court of law.

Being involved in a motorway accident can be a very painful and traumatic experience, and as such you could be left hospitalised – which in itself can have severe financial repercussions. It is for this reason that making a claim could be in your best interests, because the implications could have a major impact on your life far after the incident occurred.
