Mitchell Freeway crash: bumper to bumper traffic slowly disappears

An early morning accident has been resolved after it shut down highway traffic for commuters trying to enter the city during rush hour.

Southbound Mitchell Freeway was bumper to bumper after a car and ute collided at 5:30 a.m. Monday, spilling debris across the road.

The left and center lanes of the highway at the Vincent Street exit were blocked by traffic control for more than an hour while emergency services worked to clear the debris.

Police and firefighters were on the scene as the incident response vehicle pushed the cars off the roadway.

No one was injured, a police spokesman said.

Main Roads WA tweeted the crash warning commuters that traffic was approaching slowly, advising motorists to look for an alternative route.

It comes as an early shower this morning, drenched parts of the CBD and suburbs this morning, reducing visibility to the roads.

Motorists are advised to drive with the headlights on and to take extra break time into account.
