[E]mergency services are working hard to re-open a major road in Sunderland following a four-vehicle collision this morning.
At around 8.40am this morning police received a report of a collision on the A19 northbound carriageway after debris fell from the back of an HGV.
The incident involved a grey VW Scirocco, a black Mercedes C220, a Blue Mini One and a green Mini Cooper.
As a result the full carriageway is blocked between the A690 junction and the Hylton Bridge.
Emergency services attended but thankfully nobody is believed to have been seriously injured.
Police are hoping to re-open the road shortly after the vehicles involved have been removed from the scene.
Enquiries into the incident itself are ongoing and anyone who saw what happened should call police on 101 quoting log 172 26/04/18.
