The AA traffic updates is saying that the road is blocked "due to accident on A38 Eastbound at B3213 (Ivybridge)", which is "affecting traffic towards Ivybridge."

Social media activity is implying that there may have been a police chase before the incident, a vehicle has ended up over the barrier and officers are searching nearby, although Devon and Cornwall Police have not confirmed this. 

The police helicopter was on scene but has since left.
