UPDATED: Dog causes crash on the M65 near Nelson
A DOG which ran across the M65 motorway caused a four car collision.
The animal ran across the carriageway just after Junction 12 at Nelson, travelling westbound, at around 8.50am.
Drivers slammed on their brakes to avoid the dog, causing four cars to collide.
No injuries were reported and the road is now clear.
Police are awaiting the recovery of the Vauxhall Zafira, Honda Accord, Audi A6, and another vehicle, which were damaged during the crash and moved to the hard shoulder.
Sgt David Hogarth said: “It is quite rare for an animal to cause a motorway pile-up but it’s a good to see people wearing their seatbelts. It has prevented any serious injuries.”
