A MOTORCYCLIST and a sidecar have collided with another vehicle on the M5 northbound between Burnham and Weston.
Three lanes are currently closed on the strip of motorway.
Police got the call at 18.50 tonight, and officers are at the scene.
An Avon & Somerset Police spokeswoman said: "The only reason the motorway is partially shut is to clear the carriageway.
"There have only been reports of minor injuries to an elbow.
"We are hoping to reopen the lanes as soon as possible."
