Two men and a woman on their way to work at the Malton Bacon Factory have died in a collision on the B1248 between Wetwang and Norton.

The three were on their way to work when their Ford Focus was involved in a collision with a van. They died at the scene.

Two other men in the Focus have been taken to Hull Royal Infirmary with serious injuries after a car and a van travelling in opposite directions collided at around 6.08am this morning. The driver of the van is also being treated for serious injuries at York Hospital.

Police are asking the driver of another van which was seen travelling along the B1248 towards Malton just after 6am to come forward, police say the driver is a vital witness and should come forward as a matter of urgency.

The van driver and any other witnesses are urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and pass information to the Force Control Room using number 0052 of the 27th November.

The road has been closed for most of the day but re-opened at 4.35pm.

Officers are in the process of contacting the deceased’s next of kin

Charles Pascall, HR Director of Karro Food Group who owns the Malton Bacon Factory said:

“We are extremely saddened to hear about the road accident this morning, in which three of our colleagues were fatally injured.  Our thoughts go out to their families at this distressing time and we are offering support to those families and to the colleagues of those who died.  We are assisting the police in any way possible with their enquiries into the cause of the incident.”
