Updated: Railings flattened and wall partly demolished after York crash which left car on its side
A clear up is underway after a crash where a car hit railings and end up on its side near York Station today (Tuesday).
Railings were flattened and part of the wall demolished after the car mounted the pavement on Queen Street Bridge.
Fire crews were called out at 12.48am.
They found the car on its side with two people trapped inside. Firefighters worked to rescue them.
A North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service spokesperson said: “Crews extricated the occupants and handed them into care of paramedics.”
A spokesperson for Yorkshire Ambulance Service said: “We received an emergency call at 12.53am today to a report of a collision on Queen Street in York.
“An ambulance and team leader were dispatched to the scene where two patients were checked over, but did not need to be conveyed to hospital.”
The damaged wall has been cordoned off with tape and fencing.
Two cars parked closed to the Railway Institute are within the cordon, and at least one of them, a Vauxhall Corsa, has been damaged by the debris.
North Yorkshire Police also attended the incident, but didn’t comment further.
Queen Street Bridge is due to be demolished as part of plans to remodel the York Station frontage – a scheme that has moved forward this week with £10.5m in funding.
