It happened just before 7pm and invovled a van and an HGV lorry. It closed the road between junctions 5 (Stokenchurch) and 6 (Watlington), causing traffic tailbacks.
Both north- and southbound carriageways were closed to allow the air ambulance to land, but the northbound lanes reopened at about 11.30pm.
