Leven: Appeal for witnesses

18 May 2015

Emergency services attended a road traffic collision between a silver Fiat Punto and a Silver Vauxhall Astra at 10am yesterday, Sunday May 17.

The two vehicles were both travelling along the A1035 in the direction from Tickton towards the White Cross roundabout.  Following the collision both vehicles came to a stop on the roundabout.

A five-year-old boy and a 21-year-old woman, thought to be travelling in the Fiat Punto, were airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary.  The woman has serious, possibly life-changing injuries. The young boy has serious but not life-threatening injuries. 

A 27-year-old man from the same vehicle was taken by ambulance to Hull Royal Infirmary with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

A 38-year-old man, thought to be travelling in the Vauxhall Astra sustained serious but not life-threatening injuries and a further two casualties from this vehicle were treated for minor injuries.

Both the A1035 and A165 were closed from 10am until 4pm causing travel disruption in the area.

Officers investigating the incident are appealing for witnesses and anyone who may have seen either vehicle travelling along the A1035 from Beverley to White Cross prior to the collision. 

Investigators believe an East Yorkshire Motor Services double decker bus was close to the incident at the time and passengers on the upper deck may have witnessed the collision. 

Anyone who can help police with their enquiries should contact the non-emergency number 101, quoting log 192 of May 17.
