Two pedestrians were struck by a minibus and killed while crossing the A64.

The man and woman had just got off a Coastliner double-decker bus close at Crambeck, 13 miles north of York, just before midnight on Saturday (May 13).

As they crossed the A64 they were struck by a black Renault minibus travelling westbound towards York.

Sadly, the pedestrians, a 52-year-old woman and a 51-year-old-man from the Malton area, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police seeking witnesses

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or has any information, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.

“In particular we would like to speak to anyone who saw the Renault minibus at any time during the evening or the Coastliner bus in the Crambeck area,” a force spokeswoman said.
