A driver has died following a collision in North Yorkshire.

It happened at around 9.35am on Wednesday 6 January, westbound on a dual carriageway section of the A66 just after Scotch Corner.

The collision involved a silver Citroen and a yellow HGV with trailer. The collision resulted in road closers to allow police to investigate.

The driver of the Citroen, a man in his 50s, sustained serious injuries and was taken to James Cook Hospital, where sadly he later died.

Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with dash camera footage of the incident to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Kirsten Aldridge of North Yorkshire Police Major Collision Investigation Team said: “We know that the weather that day was extremely wintery and we are hoping that anyone who saw or believes that they have captured the collision on their dash camera or the vehicles immediately prior to the collision will come forward and assist the investigation.”
