The M62 has been closed in both directions following a major police incident between Junction 34 Selby and Junction 35 which merges into the M18. Reports are emerging that a police vehicle involved in a pursuit has collided with a motorway bridge. The fire service, ambulance and police are in attendance. There are also reports of long delays as emergency services deal with the collision and try to free queued traffic tailbacks gridlocked on the M62 both sides. The incident was reported at 11.52pm on Friday (September 3) by National Highways Yorkshire. Traffic officers have arrived on the scene after police sealed off a busy section of the M62 between Selby and Junction 35 which links to the M18. Traffic website Inrix reported at 2.30am: “M62 Westbound closed due to accident in the opposite direction from J36 A614 Rawcliffe Road (Goole) to J34 A19 (Selby / Doncaster). “The accident Eastbound between J34 and J35 required the road to be closed Westbound between J36 and J34 for emergency services to deal with the accident.
