Thankfully, no one has been injured in the incident with damage to the vehicles only.

It’s understood one car slowed to allow a large lorry to pass by, which in turn resulted in the second vehicle colliding with the rear quarter panel and coming to a stop on the grass verge.

Emergency teams are now standing down from the incident.

Although the road is currently closed in both directions it is expected to re-open shortly.
