The M5 in east Devon has reopened after collisions on both carriageways on Wednesday.
It was closed until about 01:00 GMT between junctions 28 and 29, leading to congestion on roads near the motorway.
The first collision involved a camper van and a saloon car on the southbound carriageway near Cullompton at about 13:35 on Wednesday.
The second involved three cars and an HGV on the northbound carriageway at Hele Straight at about 15:45.
One person was airlifted to hospital after the first incident and two people were seriously injured in the second collision, police said.
