Two people have died following a collision involving a motorbike and a car on the B1257 at Snilegate Head close to Newgate Bank, near Helmsley.

The collision was reported at 4.55pm yesterday  and involved a blue Yamaha motorcycle travelling towards Helmsley and a grey Volkswagen Polo travelling in the opposite direction.

The rider of the motorcycle, a man aged 45 from Redcar in Cleveland and the driver of the Volkswagen, a woman aged 65 from County Durham, were sadly both pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.

A passenger in the Volkswagen, a woman aged 75, from Stockton-on-Tees was taken to James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough with leg and arm injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

The road was closed to allow the emergency services to deal with the incident and for collision investigators to examine the scene. It reopened at around midnight.

Any witnesses who saw either of the vehicles travelling along the B1257 or who witnessed the crash, are asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Traffic Constable Mark Thompson. Or, you can email your contact information to Mark.Thompson@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
