POLICE cars have crashed 66 times in North and East Yorkshire since 2010, new figures have revealed.

A Freedom of Information request submitted to North Yorkshire Police found 49 marked and unmarked vehicles were involved in a collision on the county’s roads.

The figures show 2012 was the worst year for accidents with 11 incidents, however, the number of crashes has remained consistent since then with seven collisions in each of the last three years.
