A TRAILER carrying livestock that overturned on the A14 near the Orwell Bridge caused long tailbacks.
Police were called at about 1.45pm to the road near Wherstead, Ipswich.
A Suffolk police spokeswoman said cattle were “strewn” across the carriageway and a lane in each direction was closed to motorists.
A male driver was in a Land Rover Defender which was carrying the trailer. He suffered minor injuries.
Congestion is being reported back to Copdock.
By 4pm the cattle and Land Rover had been removed. Engineers worked to repair the central reservation which was damaged in the crash.
The road has now reopened.
