Appeal following Easingwold collision
3:50pm 18th January 2012
Traffic officers from North Yorkshire Police are appealing for the public's help to identify the driver of a tipper lorry following a road traffic collision.
It occurred on Stillington Road between Stillington and Easingwold at 8.50am on Wednesday 18th January 2012, involving a moped and a tipper lorry, which was travelling in convoy with two similar lorries.
As the lorry passed the moped, which were both heading towards Easingwold, the 19 year old woman rider came off the bike.
She suffered a minor hip injury and attended York District Hospital for treatment.
It is believed that the three lorries travelled from Sheriff Hutton to Stillington before then travelling to Easingwold, where they joined the A19 and headed north.
The first lorry in the convoy was silver and the other two were blue. It is the driver of one of the blue vehicles to whom police need to speak.
Traffic Constable Reece Williams, of North Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Group, said:
"Thankfully the woman riding the moped is not seriously injured. However, she has been left extremely shaken by the experience."
"I am urging anyone who saw the three lorries as they travelled between Sheriff Hutton and Easingwold to contact the police as soon as possible.
"I am particularly keen to speak to the drivers of the other lorries or anyone who can identify the company that owns them."
Anyone who can help the police with their enquiries is asked to contact TC Reece Williams on 101. Press option 2 and ask for Reece Williams.
