Should the sentence be "Police responded to the scene of a one-vehicle crash in the 400 block of W. Paletown Road" OR "Police responded to the scene of a one-vehicle crash on the 400 block of W. Paletown Road"?

Spending a few minutes with our friend Mr. Google shows that police reports (and therefore new reports of police activity) use "in the ?00 block" for this type of thing.

RegCor,
Becasue of the exact location (400 block), "at" is the correct prep. Consider a few other location related usage with "at"....At the counter, bank, post office
"In" is incorrect. "On" is possible depending on the context.

Hi GG,
Thanks for the input.
I guess, we are both correct in the sense that these report style writing contains both "in" and "at" in the usage.
