The smash, at Studhayes Cross, involved three private cars and one heavy goods vehicle.

One male casualty was released by fire service crews using hydraulic rescue equipment and flown to hospital by the air ambulance.

Long queues built up along Axminster bypass while medics and firefighters from Axminster and Colyton fought to help victims.
