Emergency services were called out to a three-vehicle crash on a busy York road this afternoon (Friday).
The collision happened on Haxby Road at about 12.50pm, close to the junction with the A1237 ring road just up from Joseph Rowntree School.
It involved a van and two cars.
North Yorkshire Police tweeted at 1.40pm: “One car is not drivable so officers are doing traffic control for the next hour. Please avoid the area.”
Police officers directed traffic around the stricken vehicle, which caused queuing traffic both on the ring road and Haxby Road, until it was recovered.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Crews from York and Huntington responded to a three-vehicle road traffic collision involving a van and two cars.
“All occupants were out on arrival and crews provided scene safety.”
