A FOUR car crash on the A19 caused miles of tailbacks this morning.

A Citroen, Peugeot, Renault and VW Polo collided on the north-bound section of Hylton Bridge at 6.50am, leaving two of the three lanes blocked for half-an-hour.

An ambulance was sent to the scene and checked over the people involved, but police said no one was seriously injured.

Two of the cars were driven away from the scene and the two others had to be recovered, leaving the lane bound for Washington and Wessington Way blocked until after 8am.
