Drivers were delayed during the rush hour after a three-car shunt on the A27 Brighton bypass by the turn-off to Hangleton, Portslade and Shoreham Harbour.
The queues went back to the Devil’s Dyke turn-off after the crash shortly after 8.30am this morning (Wednesday 8 February).
Sussex Police said: “At 8.32am police were alerted to a three-car collision on the A27 westbound north of Hove, between its junctions with the A2038 and the A293.
“One of the vehicles involved was believed to have collided with the central crash barrier.
“Some of the people involved were reported to have neck and back injuries, though none were believed to be serious.
“The incident led to traffic congestion while the damaged vehicles were removed.”
An accident close to the Falmer turn-off for Woodingdean and the universities cause delays for traffic heading eastbound, with queues back to Hollingbury and Patcham.
