A lorry and van crashed on the A12 near Wickham Market after a blow-out tyre puncture.
Police were called to the road in the Ipswich direction at about 12.15pm.
A force spokesman said debris and oil would need to cleared from the carriageway which was spread over 50 metres. “There are not thought to be any injuries, the ambulance and fire services were stood down,” she said.
“It looks as though one of the vehicles has gone into the back of the other following a blowout.”
One lane of the road has been blocked.
Highways workers arrived at 2pm and the road was cleared shortly after.
