Police officers were left in disbelief when a man crossed the busy M6 to take a picture of a car which crashed into the central reservation yesterday (Wednesday, April 12).

Emergency servies were called to the motorway after a silver 4x4 crashed at around 6.40pm.

No one was injured but the car was badly damaged.

Warwickshire Police’s operational patrol unit tweeted its amazement as a man crossed three lanes of motorway traffic to take a picture of the wreckage.

Police closed the southbound carriageway due to the crash, but reopened it shortly after 7pm.

Officers were not able to speak to him as by the time they had gone around the roundabout at junction one, he was gone.
