The busy route was closed off for several hours while rescue services cleared the wreckage and examined the scene.

A 20-year-old man, from Sandbach, has been arrested on suspicion of driving a vehicle while over the prescribed limit and was later charged.

He will appear at Crewe Magistrates on July 2, 2013.
