Police have closed part of a key road in North Staffordshire this morning following a crash. Officers are on site at Macclesfield Road in Poolend – close to Rudyard – where motorists are being diverted from the site.
The road has been blocked between the intersections between Rudyard Road and Green Lane – meaning drivers can use these two routes to rejoin the A523 and continue their journey into Leek or towards Rushton Spencer and Macclesfield. A tow truck was on the scene around 6:45 a.m., with one car being taken away.
Meanwhile, the collision investigation team is currently at the scene of the incident on the A523. Staffordshire Police have not yet released any details about the accident.
