A young man died in a crash on the A64 near York in the early hours of this morning (Friday).
The collision, as we reported earlier, happened shortly before 1am on the eastbound carriage near Steeton.
A black Vauxhall Corsa collided with a HGV which was parked in a lay-by.
Sadly, the driver of the Vauxhall, a 19-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured as part of the collision.
The A64 eastbound carriageway and nearby routes were closed to traffic until 12pm whilst emergency services worked at the scene.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision and would also ask anyone who saw the Vauxhall prior to the collision to come forward.
“Anyone who has dash camera footage that was in the area at the time of the incident is asked to review their footage and if it has captured anything to save the footage for the police to review.”
