I was stuck in the queue about 500 yards from the accident.

What was more shocking is the amount of stupid drivers who thought we were all at a stand still for a laugh and decided to drive down the hard shoulder only to then realise that too was closed by the HA. So not only did we have three lanes of standstill traffic but a blocked hard shoulder with idiots in it! It's a good job the emergency services had already got to the scene!
