POLICE have closed a road following a two-car smash.
A grey Vauxhall Astra and a silver Renault Clio were involved in the incident at the junction of Truro Drive, and Catcote Road, in Hartlepool, at 1.50pm today.
One person involved in the crash is believed to have suffered a back injury but it is not known whether they needed medical treatment, say police.
The position of the vehicles meant officers had to close the road while the vehicles were recovered.
A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said the carriageway would not remain closed for long.
