LUNCHTIME traffic tailbacks were caused by a three-vehicle crash in Sunderland today.

The accident happened at 12.39pm near the Doxford Park roundabout at the junction between Durham Road and the A19.

A transit van, VW Golf and a Ford Focus were all damaged in the accident, but there were no serious injuries.

A spokesman for Northumbria Police said one of the lanes was closed for a short time while the vehicles were recovered.
