Police were called at 1.50am on Saturday 15 July 2017 to reports that a person was trapped in a black Audi RS3, after being involved in a collision with the rear end of a Mercedes Box van.
The collision happened between junction one and junction two of the M602 westbound in Salford.
Emergency services attended and the 34-year-old driver of the Audi was extracted from the vehicle and taken to hospital with serious injuries where he remains in a critical but stable condition.
The driver of the Mercedes suffered minor cuts and bruising.
Road closures were in place for around three-and-a-half hours but have now been lifted and there is no further disruption to traffic in the area.
Police Constable Paul Shore of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “As with any investigation, gathering together all the evidence quickly is vital. This includes witnesses to the collision; we need you to come forward to help us fully establish what happened this morning and how the events leading up to the collision have left a man in hospital.
“Dashcam footage is always a helpful tool in our investigations so I’d urge those in the area at the time to check their footage and get in touch with us.”
