M62 re-opens 20 hours after lorry carrying 44 tonnes of butter crashes
A lorry driver remains in a critical condition in hospital after a serious collision which closed a major motorway.
The M62 has reopened after being closed eastbound at J21 Milnrow and westbound at J22 on the A672 Ripponden.
Police said a lorry went through the central reservation of the M62 on to the opposite side, colliding with a number of vehicles at about 08.15am yesterday.
The motorway remained partially closed overnight for repair work and clean-up but re-opened today.
The 37-year-old lorry driver was airlifted to hospital following the incident and remains in a critical condition with a head injury.
A second motorist, 53, was treated for a leg injury and a third driver, 30, sustained whiplash.
Officers are asking drivers who may have captured footage on CCTV or a dash-cam to contact them.
Witnesses should call the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0161 856 4741.
