M40 in Oxfordshire reopens after serious crash
Part of the M40 in Oxfordshire was closed for nearly 10 hours after a serious collision involving three cars.
The crash happened on the southbound carriageway between junctions 9 at Bicester and 8A at Thame shortly after 03:00 GMT.
Firefighters used hydraulic cutting gear to release two people from one of the vehicles.
They were taken to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. The road was reopened shortly before 13:00.
While the carriageway was closed, traffic was diverted on to the A40, causing delays to motorists.
Thames Valley Police said no-one else was hurt in the crash, which involved a VW Polo, an Audi Q7 and a van.
