A driver landed his car on its roof after hitting a barrier on the M58.

The man, in his 20s, suffered head and arm injury in the collision but was not believed to be in a life threatening condition.

The car was being driven along the motorway shortly after 1pm yesterday when it was crashed into a barrier near the Eastbound slip road at Junction 5 for Up Holland.

No other cars were involved in the crash.

A passing motorist stopped to assist the injured man and police and paramedics soon arrived at the scene. The slip road was closed for around two hours while the man was treated and the car removed.

A spokesman for North West Ambulance Service said: “We had a rapid response vehicle and an ambulance on scene. We took one patient to the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan.

“His injuries were not thought to be life threatening.”
