It is understood that one of the accidents is a motorbike crash near Tolworth with a person being treated.
A witness to the aftermath said: "All I could see was the bare legs and I got to guess it was a woman. I could see L plates."
He said: "The other incident was a bit closer to the Ace of Spades northbound, a skip caught fire. It is being towed and the Fire Brigade came."
