HGV driver says ‘my heart goes out’ to woman and children killed in crash
The driver of an HGV involved in a crash which claimed the life of a woman and two children says “his heart goes out to the family”. The fatal crash on the A64 yesterday evening claimed the lives 44-year-old woman, a nine-year-old girl and a five-year-old boy, who were all passengers in the motorhome. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
All five were travelling in a grey motorhome which collided with a white HGV, that was parked at the side of the A64, near Jinnah Restaurant at Flaxton, Ryedale, at around 8pm. It is understood the driver was on his daily rest at the time. : Just moments after this photo was taken Imran Choudhury fell 200ft at Dovestones beauty spot
He described himself as “mentally scarred” but said he has “a good support of family and friends” and his thoughts are firmly with the loved ones of the people killed in the crash.
He said: “It was horrific. I feel for the father that has lost his kids and his wife.” He was injured but did not receive treatment at the scene and added: “My heart goes out to the family.”
A six-year-old boy was taken to hospital with a serious head injury and a 48-year-old man, who was driving the motorhome, was taken to hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.
