NYP: Witness Appeal re A64 Collision Fatality
North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about a fatal pedestrian collision on the A64 near Sherburn in the Ryedale District.
The incident occurred on the west-bound carriageway at around 6.15pm on Monday (27 November 2017).
It involved a 26-year-old local man, who it is believed had walked to the A64 from Scagglethorpe, and a blue Ford Focus car.
The man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics. His family have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers. We are not yet in a position to release his identity.
The stretch of road remained closed to traffic until 10.45pm while the police carried out a detailed collision investigation. Local diversions were put in place during this time.
Police enquiries remain ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.
Officers are appealing for witnesses to come forward as soon as possible, including anyone who possibly recalls seeing either the man or the blue Ford Focus prior to the collision.
If you can help, please call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask Hamish Halloway or Emma Drummond. Please quote reference number 12170212968 when providing information about this incident.
