No further details of any injuries sustained by people in the crash have been released at this time.
The motorway was closed westbound between junctions 3 and 4 until 11.43am.
The eastbound carriageway was also closed for a time this morning to allow the Air Ambulance helicopter to land, but has since reopened.
A Humberside Police spokesman said in the wake of the accident: "We would advise drivers to take it very carefully.
"There is a lot of standing traffic. If at all possible drivers should take an alternative route, or should think twice about whether the journey is imperative."
