The crash involved a blue Hyundai Accent which is registered to an Ilfracombe keeper and a blue Kia Sorento which belongs to someone living in Bideford.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall police said the incident was described as not life threatening or life changing. He said: "An ambulance was called for minor injuries. One casualty was complaining of chest, arm and thigh pain."
Tiverton-bound traffic was diverted at Bish Mill and Barnstaple-bound traffic was diverted at Moortown Cross.
The road was reopened just after 8am.
