What to do if you have an accident on the motorway:

If you can, switch on your hazard warning lights to warn other drivers. Don’t try and leave the motorway as someone involved may be injured and your car may not be safe to drive.

If there are any injuries, call the emergency services straight away, or try and ask someone else to.

The best way to do this is via a motorway SOS phone, as the operator will know your exact location.

Anyone who is not injured should try to move away from their vehicle to a safe place, ideally away from the road and hard shoulder.

However, do not put yourself or other drivers in any danger.
