The A38 at Dean is blocked after a car overturned earlier this afternoon.
The incident was reported at 5.29pm and rush hour traffic has compounded the problem which is affecting the A38 in both directions between Lower Dean junction and the Rattery turn-off at Harbourneford.
Lane two is currently closed after the car overturned from the eastbound carriageway and came to rest on the westbound side, according to traffic service Inrix.
It is likely emergency services are at the scene and Plymouth Live is attempting to contact Devon and Cornwall Police.
BBC Travel South West has stated that traffic is queueing around Buckfastleigh heading towards Plymouth while Exeter bound traffic is also slow moving.
