The road had to be closed while the incident was being dealt with.

The collision was reported just before 6.30am this morning (Tuesday August 6th).

A hay lorry and a private ambulance car were involved in the crash between the junction for the A350 and the Mere Bypass.


Wiltshire Police have updated us on the incident:

Highways England have also tweeted about the re-opening: 


The hay lorry involved overturned and shed its load in the crash.

The road closure was mostly due to the need to clear the hay from both sides of the carriageway.

Police have also confirmed that no patients were in the ambulance when the crash happened.

South Western Ambulance Service tell us one person was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
