Appeal for witnesses to serious collision in North Yorkshire

Two people are in a serious condition in hospital following a collision on the A66 in North Yorkshire. A lorry tanker travelling eastbound was involved in a collision with a green Skoda Yeti outside the Fox Hall Inn at Ravensworth at 12.30pm on Friday May 19. As a result of the collision the car struck an electricity pole, bringing power cables down across the road.

The lorry had been carrying corrosive chemicals but was nominally empty. The two occupants of the car, a 59-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman from Nottinghamshire, were taken to James Cook hospital with serious life changing injuries. The tanker driver, from Hartlepool was not injured in the incident, but left very shaken.

A third vehicle was damaged by debris from the collision.

As a result of the collision the A66 was closed to allow the police to carry out a full investigation, to establish the cause of the collision and to allow the power lines, which had been brought down to be reinstalled.
