Emergency services were called to the southbound carriageway close to the Thornaby and Acklam turn-off at around 11.40am yesterday.
Three of the cars involved ended up positioned on the grass verge while a fourth car was reported to facing the wrong way on the central reservation.
Three fire crews from Thornaby, Stockton and Middlesbrough attended the crash and firefighters worked to free one of the drivers involved who was trapped in a car.
