A MAN has died following a crash on the M18 this morning (Friday).
Emergency services are still dealing with the multi-vehicle collision which happened on the southbound carriageway just after 7am.
It is believed that a man, thought to be in his 50s, got out of his vehicle after he was involved in a crash before being hit by another vehicle or vehicles travelling in an adjoining lane. He suffered fatal injuries.
A number of other vehicles have then collided as a result.
The M18 southbound remains closed between junction four and junction two. Other surrounding roads have reopened but are heavily congested.
Officers dealing with the collision urge motorists to find an alternative route. It is expected that the carriageway will be closed for several hours.
