TRAFFIC is at a standstill all the way to Mount Henry Bridge after two cars collided near the Sutherland Street entry to Mitchell Freeway this afternoon.

The right lanes on the Mitchell Freeway northbound, before Loftus Street in West Perth, are blocked after a crash occurred at about 4.12pm.

A Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokesperson said a person was trapped in the car.

Emergency services are at the scene.

Main Roads advised motorists to exercise extreme caution as traffic is heavy and backed up to Cranford Avenue.
