A THREE car smash left two people trapped in their car with neck injuries.
Police and paramedics were called to Queen Street, Colchester, just after 3pm today following the collision outside The Gym and former Route nightclub.
Paramedics called for assistance from the fire service just after 3.30pm.
Firefighters arrived on the scene to cut off the roof of one of the cars involved and free a man and a woman with neck injuries.
The injuries are not thought to have been serious.
A spokesman for Essex Police said a blue Vauxhall Astra, red Ford Mondeo and black Hyundai i20 collided partially blocking off the road.
The combination of the crash and the roadworks on Ipswich Road left the town gridlocked.
