A30 near Okehampton closed for six hours after vehicles collide
A major route in Devon was closed for nearly six hours after a collision left debris and fuel all over the road.
Emergency services were called to the A30 between Whiddon Down and Meldon near Okehampton at 2:42am today after reports of a collision.
Police had initially received reports a car had flipped over on to its roof after colliding with a 3.5 tonne Renault lorry, however recent information from the police confirms a lorry had collided with another Bedford lorry.
Both male drivers were found at the scene "walking wounded" with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the car was taken the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital by ambulance to be checked over.
The crash left debris and fuel on the road forcing the closure of the west-bound carriageway.
Five dogs which were reported to have ran from the scene of the collision have been accounted for.
At 7:15am Highways Agency staff and the council were at the scene clearing the road.
A diversion was put in place via the A382. Motorists were advised to drive through South Zeal and Sticklepath and rejoin A30 at Tongue.
