The teams worked hard alongside paramedics from South Central Ambulance Service, Thames Valley Police and Highways England traffic officers to remove the roof from the vehicle once medically stable, and take the driver for medical care.

The motorway between 8A-9 was shut at approximately 4.30am, and a diversion was put in place.

Another accident occurred near Bicester earlier this month (December) where a car flipped over.
