The incident happened between junctions three and four of the M27 eastbound at around 4.45pm.

Police have closed lane three and traffic is slow as a result.

Shortly after, a second crash between a  blue Ford and a silver Toyota in the same lane and nearby to the initial incident added the the delays.

"M27 motorway at a standstill after crash" - "Police have closed lane three and traffic is slow as a result."

Which part of the word 'standstill' do you not understand?

I agree with the above ( sarcastic) comment about " quality driving" on Hampshire's roads. I travel many times over the course of a day on the M27 and M3 for work as i am a professional driver and the standard of driving is " diabolical". The old 1970's and 1980's T.V safety campaign message of " Only a fool breaks the 2 seconds rule" is now interpreted as being " Only a fool breaks the POINT TWO of a second rule". It's about time Motorway driving was a compulsory part of the driving test and the Police more " pro-active" with bad driving practices rather than sitting in cars with laser guns drying to catchy "speeders" doing 35 mph in a 30mph zone. Priorities are all wrong in my opinion.

Drivers are less patient these days and MUST try to force their way past even if they crash into you. The mentality of "i must get to my destination bugger everything else" is what's creating these accidents
