THE A40 into Haverfordwest has re-opened following a two-car crash at lunch time which caused massive traffic queues.

The road from Canaston Bridge to Haverfordwest was closed both ways between 1pm and 3pm due to a crash which involved two cars.

Ambulance crews were on the scene, and took two people to Withybush hospital.

"We were called at approximately 1.10pm this afternoon to reports of a two-vehicle road traffic collision on the A40 between Haverfordwest and Canaston Bridge."

"A crew in an emergency ambulance are currently at the scene," a spokesperson for the Welsh Ambulance Service said.

As of 3:30 traffic was still moving slowly in the area as the road re-opened.

Drivers have been urged to take an alternative route if possible, but there are reports of slow-moving traffic on the main diversion route to Wiston.

"It's at a total standstill," said one witness who lives on the road.

"There's been cars turning down in my layby, and nothing is really moving."

Police also attended and originally estimated the road would be closed for some time.

Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue sent two fire engines from Haverfordwest to the scene.

The fire service attended between 1:30pm and 2pm and cut one of the drivers out of his car and handed him over to paramedics.
