It occurred at 5.50pm on Friday 26 April 2013, on Knaresborough Road, Starbeck.
The rover was driven by a 32-year-old local man with two children in the rear and was travelling towards Harrogate, when the van pulled across the front of it and headed along Wedderburn Avenue.
As a result of the collision the Rover was badly damaged although no one in the car was injured.
Traffic Constable Stuart Holden, of North Yorkshire Police’s Roads Policing Group, said:
It may be that the driver of the van involved is not aware of the collision. I ask them to come forward so that I can take a statement from them about the incident.
I also need to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision and ask them to get in touch.
I am keen to speak with people who work in vehicle repair shops as I believe that the van will have been damaged. Anyone who is asked to carry out repairs to white vans is urged to contact the police as soon as possible.
Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact Harrogate police on 101, press option 2 and ask for Stuart Holden. Alternatively, information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
