Emergency services attended the scene of a multi-vehicle collision which happened at around 8.30am on the inbound lane of the M18 between Junction 3 (Coonagh) and Junction 4 (Cratloemoyle).The hard shoulder and one of the two lanes were closed for almost two hours but the dual carriageway has since reopened.
