Driver who blacked out at the wheel hurtles off motorway

A driver came off the motorway in a dramatic fashion after they suffered a medical episode at the wheel.

The emergency services were called out to a section of the M61 earlier today after the car came off the road and travelled down an embankment.

An image of the scene shows just how far the vehicle travelled as it left the road, tumbled down a steep grassy bank and eventually came to rest among a clump of trees.

Despite blacking out at the wheel, thankfully, the driver escaped serious injury.
