A woman has been taken to hospital with multiple injuries after five cars collided on the A500 in Stoke-on-Trent.
Paramedics were called to the southbound carriageway by the Reg Mitchell Way junction earlier on Wednesday.
The woman, in her 30s, was trapped in her car and cut free. She suffered arm, shoulder, hip and knee injuries.
The majority of the vehicles involved suffered relatively minor damage except for one, West Midlands Ambulance said.
