A RUSH-HOUR car smash brought traffic chaos to a busy Burnley road.

Two cars were in collision in Padiham Road last night close to the Spar shop on Middlesex Avenue.

The accident happened at around 5-20 p.m. when a Nissan X-Trail and a BMW collided.

Police were forced to shut off the road for more than an hour after one of the vehicles overturned.

Paramedics were called to the scene but the drivers only suffered minor injuries.

The road was re-opened by police at 6-40 p.m.
