A FORENSIC collision investigation unit went to the scene of a serious crash which blocked York's Holgate Road last night.

The unit attends all fatal/potential fatal & life changing collisions, providing specialist plan drawing and scene modelling for serious crime scenes where appropriate.

North Yorkshire Police shut the road to traffic outside The Fox pub as a result of a crash further along the carriageway at teatime yesterday.
