MORNING commuters are being urged to avoid the A556 at Plumley this morning after a collision closed the Chester-bound carriageway.
The accident, involving two cars - a Seat Ibiza and a Ford Mondeo - happened close to the car wash and Smoker Pub.
Eye witnesses told the Guardian the silver Mondeo cross the carriageway, flattening a road sign, before hitting the Ibiza that was travelling on the Chester-bound carriageway.
It happened shortly before 8am.
On Twitter Knutsford Police (@KnutsfordNPU) tweeted: "Collision on A556 outside The Smoker PH. Chester Bound carriageway closed. Please avoid the area."
As a result traffic is queued back towards the M6 junction 19 and through Lostock Gralam, into Northwich.
