Hundreds of Amazon parcels spilled over a dual carriageway after a lorry crashed and overturned.

The truck flipped on its side and landed on the central reservation before it slid down the road and came to a stop.

It was left stretched across the central reservation with both carriageways blocked on the A27 near Emsworth, Hampshire on Friday morning.

A car then collided with the HGV at 5.40am.

Huge piles of the Amazon packages burst through the top of the lorry’s sealed roof and scattered across the trunk road.

The brown boxes were left lying on the road as emergency services arrived at the scene.

The lorry driver, 62, was taken to hospital suffering a serious injury, although it is not life-threatening.

The car driver, a 50-year-old woman, is said to have suffered minor injuries.

Traffic was heavily delayed as the road was closed in both directions.
