A DRIVER from Huddersfield has been injured in an accident involving a police car on the M62.
Humberside Police said the collision happened as a Volkswagen Polo and a marked Volvo patrol car were travelling between junctions 34 and 35 - a stretch between North and East Yorkshire, south of Selby.
The police car was resp- onding to a report of a lorry fire on the eastbound carriageway and was said to have all of its lights illuminated and the siren sounding.
The driver of the Polo suffered a minor arm injury and was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary. He was released after treatment.
A police spokesman said the two male officers in the police car were uninjured, but were now suffering the after effects of a high speed collision.
The motorway was closed for six hours.
* A coach was wrecked in a fire on the M62 near Huddersfield early today.
The eastbound lanes were closed for more than 30 minutes as fire crews battled the blaze shortly after 5.15am.
Despite their efforts, the double-deck 1996 coach, owned by a Goole transport firm, was wrecked. It was returning to East Yorkshire after taking passengers to Manchester Airport.
Elland fire station watch manager Kelvin Steele said: "The driver saw smoke coming from the centre of the coach as he came down the hill from junction 22 towards Scammonden.
"He pulled over on to the hard shoulder, but when he lifted the access panel to have a look, the flames flared up.
"By the time we arrived the vehicle was completely ablaze."
