A lane along the M18 had to be closed for several hours when a white Mercedes heavy tractor artic and a bronze Civic Honda collided on the slip road northbound at junction three.
Another vehicle reported to be involved was not, a police spokesman confirmed, but had pulled over near to the scene because it had broken down.
No-one was hurt following the collision which happened just before 9am.
Motorists were left queuing along the M18 and towards junction two of the A1(M) Wadworth following the collision.
The lane has since re-opened.
