Seven patients have been assessed by ambulance staff after a six vehicle shunt on the M6 in Staffordshire this morning.
The crash happened at about 8.45am on Wednesday morning on the southbound carriageway, about a mile before junction 14 (Stafford North).
Two ambulances and a senior paramedic officer were sent to the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, ambulance staff found six cars that had been in collision in lane three of the motorway.
“Although a number had suffered significant front and rear end damage, none of those inside the vehicles was seriously hurt.
“A woman was taken by ambulance to Royal Stoke University Hospital with neck and back pain, but it not thought that it was serious.
“A man was taken to County Hospital in Stafford with chest and abdominal pain, but again this was for precautionary checks.
“A further five men were assessed at the scene and discharged without the need to go to hospital.”
