The incident has halted traffic and triggered extensive delays for traffic heading in both directions.

Southbound traffic is backed up for at least 10 kiloemtres.

It’s slow-moving also for those heading north, with bumper-to-bumper conditions stretching for at least four kilometres.

It was not immediately clear how many people if any were injured in the smash.

Motorists have been urged to steer clear of the area.
