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.
A Suffolk Police spokeswoman said it appeared no-one had been seriously injured in the pile-up.
She said the accident seemed to have been caused by the stray dogs running across the road.

Heavy rush hour traffic was worsened as the road ground to a halt near the Copdock interchange.
The outside lane of the Felixstowe-bound A14 was completely blocked and reports suggested traffic was snaking back for nearly two miles to Sproughton.
