Car overturns onto roof in York accident
A CAR overturned and came to rest on its roof after colliding with another vehicle in York last night.
North Yorkshire Police said officers were called out at about 11.45pm, following reports of a collision in Holgate.
“A silver Vauxhall Astra spun on the road and hit a black Seat Leon before overturning and coming to rest on its roof,” said a spokesman.
“Nobody was injured in the collision. The road was blocked while the Astra was recovered and was clear at around 3am.”
He urged any witnesses to call police on 101.
Local resident Dave Ruddock said he and a number of other people heard two loud bangs and went out to see the car on its roof in Acomb Road, at the junction with Moorgate.
He said he grabbed a yellow jacket and assisted in re-directing traffic, which was unable to pass.
He added that to add to the confusion, a fire alarm went off at a nearby hostel, bringing fire engines racing to the scene.
