A man has died after his motorbike was involved in a crash with two other vehicles on a busy North Yorkshire road.
The incident happened at 5.20pm on Saturday (26 August) on the A61 between Ripley and South Stainley.
A dark coloured Suzuki Bandit motorbike, a dark coloured Land Rover Discovery and a white Ford Transit van were involved in the collision.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Sadly, the rider of the motorcycle, a 59-year-old man died.
“The man’s family have been informed and are receiving support from specially trained officers.”
The driver of the Land Rover and the van both stopped at the scene to help officers with their enquiries.
Police believe that the biker was travelling with a group of motorbikes immediately before the collision and he was at the rear of the group.
The road was closed for several hours to allow officers to conduct investigation work.
Police are now appealing to anyone who may have seen the crash to come forward. They would also like to hear from anyone who has dashcam footage of the collision or the vehicles before it happened.
