(Updated 1:44pm 12th November 2009)
A four by four vehicle may hold vital information about a collision which resulted in the death of 10-year-old Sean Hamilton in York on Saturday 3 October 2009.
Sean was walking across Holgate Road near Holgate Bridge - known locally as “the Iron Bridge” - at 8.20pm when he was knocked over by a blue Ford Transit panel van.
Police believe that Sean crossed the road directly behind the light-coloured 4X4, which was not directly involved with the collision.
Traffic Sergeant Andy Quigley, of the Central Area Road Policing Group, believes the occupants may be able to shed light on the manner of driving of other vehicles in the area at the time or may have noticed a young boy matching Sean's description that Saturday evening.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.
