EMERGENCY services were at the scene of a crash, a car heading towards Junction 15 (Swindon East/Marlborough) of the M4 having left the road earlier this afternoon.
Tri-Force Police tweeted: “Thankfully driver crawled out uninjured after ‘dosing off’ after missing the (Membury) services 5 miles earlier!
“Tiredness can kill, take a break, don’t drive whilst tired.”
They updated just before 6pm saying, “Yes, driver did doze off, fortunately missing several other cars and now has some explaining to do.”
The crashed car has now been removed from the ditch at the side of the westbound carriageway.
