A car ended up overturned in bushes and trees at the side of the M56 following an accident near the Hapsford exit.
No one was injured in the accident which saw the car leave the motorway near the slip road for junction 14 westbound and crash through the barrier before ending up in the trees just before 9am on Sunday (November 22).
Cheshire Police, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and North West Ambulance were among the services called to the scene.
Recovery vehicles later made their way to the incident to make arrangements to remove the car which was severely damaged.
Due to the fact the stricken vehicle had left the motorway, emergency services were able to deal with the incident from the hard shoulder so there was no impact on traffic which had started to build up as shoppers were heading for Cheshire Oaks.
A North West Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: "We were called at 8.53am about a car which had appeared to have gone through the barrier. We sent an ambulance and a rapid response vehicle.
"We also initially alerted a helicopter as we thought it might be serious but it was stood down very quickly as there was no patient at the scene requiring our help."
A Cheshire Police spokesman said the accident was being viewed as a straight forward incident and there was no further investigation planned.
The accident happened just days after Weaver Vale MP Graham Evans raised what he described as 'serious concerns' about the stretch of motorway from junctions 12 to 14 of the M56.
The MP said he wanted to bring in technology, such as a smart motorway system, to improve safety and traffic flow.
However, transport minister Andrew Jones confirmed in a parliamentary debate that no construction work would be undertaken to improve the motorway until after 2020.
Meanwhile, Ellesmere Port and Neston MP Justin Madders is trying to keep up the pressure on the Government by continuing to urge people to sign his petition at www.justinmadders.com calling for immediate action.
