There are major travel disruptions this morning (Thursday) in Burnham-on-Sea and Bridgwater.
Avon and Somerset Police say there have been three separate collisions in the area - two southbound and one northbound.
One lane is closed M5 southbound between J22, Burnham and J23, Bridgwater North, due to an incident.
Congestion back to Weston-super-Mare is affecting travel time by 30 minutes.
Travel Somerset also confirmed that traffic is heavy northbound due to motorists slowing to look at the southbound accident.
Avon and Somerset Police tweeted: “We are currently dealing with three separate collisions on the M5 between junction 22 and 23, two are Southbound and one is a Northbound incident.
“No one is believed to be serious injured but expect some disruption whilst we work to sort them and make everyone safe.”
Highways England spokesman Neville Smith said: “From about 6.30am we experienced a number of incidents between junctions 22 and 23.
“Both north and southbound lanes have been cleared and are now open and running, but expect some residual delays.”
