A car is believed to have crashed into a wall and railings on the southbound carriageway heading out of town, near Wyverne Court, leading to the closure of the road between its junctions with Brierton Lane and Rossmere Way.
The A689 has now reopened although debris can be seen by the side of the dual carriageway.
A North East Ambulance Service spokesperson said on Saturday morning: "We were called to a road traffic collision last night, 17 November, near the A689 in Hartlepool at 22:20. We dispatched two ambulance crews, a clinical team leader and the medicar."
Cleveland Police, who initially described the incident as “a serious collision”, have been contacted for more information.
