EMERGENCY crews were called to a motorway after a van was involved in a crash with a car.
The collision happened on the westbound M62 near junction 6.
When firefighters arrived they found a transit van on its side on the hard shoulder and the car was in a lane of the motorway.
Firefighters used a power saw to cut a hole in the roof of the van to help paramedics free the man in the rear of the vehicle and take him to an ambulance.
Six men had been inside the transit van. The driver of the van and the driver of the car had been released from their vehicles when firefighters arrived on scene.
Paramedics also attended and the men were taken to hospital.
Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service was called at 3.29pm on Friday, October 5 to the M62 Westbound near junction 6.
Crews from St Helens Community Fire Station, the Croxteth-based search and rescue team and Whiston Community Fire Station attended.
