Police say there are no injuries in the A38 crash but the road has been closed
A spokeswoman for Devon and Cornwall police said: “We were called just before 4.10pm to reports of a three-car RTC by the Ashburton junction on the southbound carriageway.
“The carriageway has been closed as all vehicles are blocking the road.
“There seems to be no injuries but we possibly have people in shock.
“An ambulance has been called.”
The spokeswoman added the vehicles involved have not been listed in the log, but a white van is involved in the collision.
“It is causing traffic tailbacks,” she added.
