One lane of a busy commuter road was closed for just under an hour after a two-car crash this morning.
Police received reports of the collision on the A41 southbound, near the junction for Berkhamsted, at 9am. The smash involved a silver Mercedes B150 and a black Ford Fiesta.
Both vehicles needed recovery, but were first moved off the carriageway so that lane one could be reopened at 9.50am.
Two adults and a child were taken to Watford General Hospital by ambulance with non-serious injuries.
