A crash is causing major delays on the A31 and A338 Spur Road this evening.

The incident, which is believed to have taken place on the A31 eastbound between Ringwood and the Ashley Heath roundabout, involves two Mercedes cars.

The collision took place on the middle lane of the three-lane stretch, opposite the Fish Inn on the eastbound carriageway.

A spokesperson for Hampshire Police said officers from both Dorset and Hampshire were dealing with the incident.

Ambulance are also on the scene but any injuries are not thought to be life-threatening or life-changing.

The road is partially blocked but traffic is able to move past, the spokesperson added.

Recovery has been requested for the vehicles.

I thought this was a 4 lane road?

Certainly was when I passed the accident about 7pm albeit with only 2 lanes open.

Because it is 4 lanes.

No wonder there are accidents with you on the road.

Drive from ferndown to the ringwood/salisbury turning and count the lanes. Or just google map it.

2 lanes continue on the A31 towards Southampton
1 to ringwood
1 to salisbury.

Now im not great at counting but that looks like 4 to me.

Clue in the story above is EASTBOUND. YOU DONT KNOW LEFT FROM RIGHT EITHER I WOULD BET.

If you are travelling from Ferndown to Ringwood then you are going the wrong way , Ringwood to Ashley Heath is the other way and yes I do live on the other side of the world BUT Ringwood was home for a long time !!
