Two people taken to hospital following ‘head-on’ collision’.

The A361 North Devon Link Road is currently closed near South Molton following a five-vehicle crash earlier this morning (Saturday).

Diversions are in place between the Aller Cross roundabout and the North Molton junction following what is thought to have been a head-on collision at around 11.20am.

Two people have been taken to hospital, although police said injuries sustained were not thought to be ‘life changing’.

Traffic is currently being diverted through South Molton and motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible.

Four vehicles are still awaiting recovery and debris is being cleared from the road, although police said they expected to re-open the carriageway within the hour.
