An image posted by Fife Jammers on Facebook shows traffic grinding to a halt and the car, which appears to be towing some sort of caravan, both overturned on the bypass, with no traffic getting through.
As rush hour approaches Edinburgh commuters who use this busy Scottish bypass will no doubt be affected by the tailbacks which are expected to extend into the evening.
Motorists traveling from Edinburgh over the Queensferry crossing and towards the east of Scotland are expected to get caught up in the incident this afternoon.
The bypass, which circles Cowdenbeath, also joins onto the M90, as updates from Traffic Scotland throughout the afternoon are expected.
