Police warned drivers to "take care" after the M11 crash by Girton, Cambridgeshire

Police officers have said they "don't know" how a driver only suffered minor injuries after a crash on a motorway.

Beds, Cambs and Herts Roads Policing Unit released a dramatic image of a heavily damaged van at Girton, Cambridgeshire, at about 10:50 GMT.

On Twitter officers said: "Minor injuries only. How we don't know."

Highways England said the northbound section of the road was closed after a "serious traffic collision between a heavy goods vehicle and a car."

Police said an Audi A4, Vauxhall Movano van and an HGV were involved, with the van driver taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge with minor injuries.

Traffic was being diverted to junction 32 and back, it added, but the road has since reopened.
