A Harrogate man has been injured in a collision on the A59
It occurred at just after 7.30am on Thursday 3 May 2012, close to a lay-by between Bolton Bridge and Draughton. It involved a black Yamaha motorcycle heading towards Skipton and Mitsubishi Pajero van towing a trailer.
Following the collision a black Land Rover stopped at the scene and the driver spoke with the van driver – they had left the area before the arrival of the emergency services.
The man driving the Mitsubishi was not injured in the collision.
I am urging the driver of the land rover, who stopped at the scene of the collision, to come forward and contact the police straight away. I believe that they have vital information about the incident.
I would also like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either of the vehicles prior to the incident. I ask them to contact the police as soon as possible.
If you can assist with this investigation please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, press option 2 and ask for Mark Mullins.
