Motorists faced traffic delays on the A12 in Essex this morning following two separate collisions.

According to the AA, two cars were involved in a collision on the southbound carriageway between junction 25 and 24 earlier today, leaving ‘significant debris’ on the carriageway.

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 5.33am today, June 21, to reports of a road traffic collision on the A12 southbound, near Marks Tey.

“An ambulance crew was sent to the scene to help.

“At the scene we treated a man, believed to be in his 30s, for a possible head injury.

“The patient was taken to Colchester General Hospital for further treatment.”

The scene has now been cleared and vehicles moved to the side of the road.

Another crash, involving a lorry and three cars, close to junction 25, A120 London, blocked lane three of the carriageway.

The ambulance service did not attend.

Traffic backed between Feering and Colchester as a result of the two collisions.
