A northbound stretch of the A12 has reopened following a collision that saw one vehicle hit a tree.
The collision occurred earlier this afternoon, Sunday April 7, between J19 and J20a near Boreham, just north east of Chelmsford.
Highways England has said that a car has hit a tree, leaving debris on the carriageway.
A diversion route was put in place by the authority, taking vehicles on the B1137 through Boreham and Hatfield Peverel before rejoining the A12 at J20B.
They tweeted: “#A12 j19 to J20A, Northbound, 2 Vehicle Traffic Collision, Car has hit a Tree and there is Debris in the Carriageway, Lane 1 blocked. #Essex #Borham”
A rolling road block was put in place on the opposite southbound lane to assist traffic flow.
Essex Police, who has officers on scene, has since confirmed that it was a single-vehicle collision.
A spokesman for the force said: “We were called to a single-vehicle collision on the A12 near Junction 19 for the Boreham Interchange.
No-one has been seriously injured.”
