Traffic from Ashley Down and Horfield was diverted down Chesterfield Road, causing tailbacks for much of the morning.
The road, which is a busy commuter route from north-east Bristol to the M32 and central Bristol, was then reopened at about 1.40pm.
Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision to call them on 101.
