Three people are fighting for their lives after a “serious collision” between a minibus and a lorry on the M4 today.
I have never seen an accident site so horrendous looking and with such an enormous emergency services response as on the M4. Looked nasty, I pray it's not that bad 😢

Thames Valley Police is currently on the scene of the collision between a heavy goods vehicle and a minibus on the M4 between J14 at Hungerford and J13 at Chieveley.
The accident took place around 12.20pm today.
#Berkshire On the #M4 eastbound J14 – J13, we're working hard with the emergency services to release the traffic that is 'trapped' within the section of motorway that remains closed. There's approx' 1½ miles of traffic still to be released; we hope to have you on your way soon.

Commuters have been advised to avoid the area as Westbound is due to re-open shortly while eastbound traffic is being turned around.
