A man was taken to hospital after his motorbike collided with a van along Chelsea Embankment during morning rush hour on Wednesday (June 21).
Emergency services were called to the busy road at 7.30am and closed Chelsea Embankment in both directions at around 8.15am.
A spokesman for Metropolitan Police told GetWestLondon that the force was called following reports of a "road traffic collision between a van and motorbike".
London Ambulance Service was called to the scene.
The police spokesman said: "The male motorcyclist was taken to a south London hospital, however his injuries are not life threatening."
It was confirmed that "no arrests" were made and "enquiries continue".
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said crew on route to provide relief coverage elsewhere stopped to provide first aid at the scene.
Get West London was told: "We did not attend in the capacity to do with the road traffic collision but a crew which was on their way to provide relief coverage elsewhere stopped to give first aid before London Ambulance arrived."
The accident was cleared by 11am and caused commuter chaos in the midst of the morning rush hour.
The embankment between Battersea Bridge and Albert Bridge was reopened at 10am - nearly two hours after it was closed.
Queues of traffic backed to Royal Hospital Road, Edith Gove to King's Road and Surrey Lane to Battersea Bridge Road.
Bus route 170 was also subject to diversion and delays.
