STRAY dogs on the A14 caused a five-car pile-up today.
Police rushed to the scene just before 8.45am after reports of the multi-vehicle smash.
They found five vehicles piled up in the outside lane of the Felixstowe-bound carriageway and two dogs running free towards Copdock.
An officer eventually managed to catch the Labrador and German Shepherd. They were taken off the road and were due to be reunited with their distressed owner.
