POLICE are investigating after a two-car collision which closed a road for two hours.
Officers from the road policing unit at Cleveland Police were called to Hartlepool’s Clarence Road, opposite the Mail’s office, after a collision involving a red Ford Puma and a silver Vauxhall Astra on Friday night.
