THREE motorists were injured in a crash involving three vans which closed a busy stretch of motorway in South Yorkshire.
The smash happened when a white Mercedes Sprinter collided with the back of an orange and white DAF while travelling northbound on the M18 near Bramley, Rotherham, at around 2.15am yesterday.
The Mercedes overturned before another van, a white Renault, crashed into it.
Long traffic queues built up as the motorway was shut between junctions one and two while the scene was cleared. It reopened at around 10.30am.
Witnesses should call police on 101.
