HOUR-LONG delays that mounted from Waterlooville – up to Clanfield and towards Petersfield – on the A3(M) northbound, should now start to ease as the road has been cleared.
Five people were reported to have suffered minor injuries after the crash, which blocked one lane between junction 2 for Horndean and junction 1 for Clanfield.
When the accident happened, shortly after 6.30am this morning, traffic was solid from Waterlooville.
Police said a Honda Jazz, Mercedes Sprinter van and Ford Transit van were involved.
The incident was still being dealt with at 8am, but just before 8.30am Wave 105 Travel confirmed the road has been cleared - but that long delays will take a while to ease.
There are also delays on the A3, and traffic as far back as Portsmouth.
