The emergency services were called out to the smash, at about 7.50am between an articulated lorry and three other vehicles.
The incident has blocked lanes one and two of the London-bound carriageway.
Police, paramedics and firefighters were called out to the scene. One person is thought to have suffered a neck injury and firefighters may have to cut the roof off the vehicle to get the person out.
Motorists are being advised to avoid the area until the crash site can be cleared.

Another mutli-vehicle crash caused delays for motorists heading from Medway to Maidtsone this morning. 

The accident happened on the Maidstone-bound carriageway of Blue Bell Hill. 

Police were called to the scene just before 8am and helped move the vehicles onto the grass verge, just off the entry slip road. 

No injuries have been reported.
