A VAN driver has been arrested after a crash led to a slip road onto the A64 at York being blocked this morning.
The collision happened at about 8.55am on the slip road leading onto the westbound carriageway of the route at Askham Bryan and involved an orange Ford Escort van and a black Nissan Micra.
The road has now been reopened and nobody was seriously injured, but a North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the 29-year-old driver of the van has been arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive through drink and is currently in custody.
Meanwhile, a woman escaped being seriously injured this morning after a crash involving a moped at an accident blackspot near York.
