A CHILD and four adults have been injured in a crash that's closed a road.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service say they were called at 2.14am today (May 12) to Burdyke Avenue in York after reports of a crash between a motorbike and a car.

A service spokesman said: "Acomb and York fire crews responded to a two vehicle crash.

"No one was trapped, though four adults and one young child had to be given first aid at the scene prior to the arrival of paramedics.

"Fire crews also made the vehicles safe, and incident left in hands of North Yorkshire Police."

The road was closed both ways from Water Lane to Crichton Avenue, but reopened after 2pm after earlier police accident investigation work was completed. 

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said while work was being carried out: "Motorists are urged to avoid the area until further notice and to follow local diversions.

"Witnesses or anyone with information that could assist the collision investigation are urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 1, and speak to the Force Control Room.

"Please quote reference NYP-12052022-0033 when providing details."
