A crash on the M6 involving two lorries, a coach and a car led to traffic delays earlier.
Vehicles were queuing for about five miles (8km) southbound following the collision between junction 15, near Stoke-on-Trent, and 14, for Stafford.
It was believed the coach and the car were involved in a collision at 12:00 GMT and the car ended up under a lorry.
One person in the car suffered minor injuries.
The M6 was closed southbound at junction 15, but reopened from about 17:00 GMT.
Two other incidents have also affected traffic elsewhere on the M6 southbound.
A passenger in his 40s was trapped in a van for about an hour and removed by the fire service, following a collision involving a lorry between junction 10, near Walsall, and junction 9, for Wednesbury, at about 09:45 GMT.
He was taken to Birmingham's QE Hospital with back injuries.
A car fire between junction 13, south of Stafford, and junction 12, for Cannock, led to delays before the wreckage was removed.
