The A149 coast road was closed for more than two hours after the single vehicle accident near the Hardwick Roundabout this morning.
Emergency services were called to the scene just before 8.20am.
Police took to social media to ask drivers for their cooperation as firefighters made the scene safe.
'Lots of head shaking and arms waving by drivers! We are doing our best! The next few tweets will be a poem,' one officer tweeted.
'No point in shaking your head over what I've said, no point over waving your hands in the air like you just don't care.'
Shortly afterwards, he added: 'I'm just a jobbing copper trying to do things proper.'
Officers then tweeted a picture of the van involved and a dog, who along with his owner escaped unharmed. The road re-opened at around 11.30am.
