Appeal for witnesses after fatal collision on A614


20 Sep 2021

Officers were called to the scene of a serious road traffic collision on the A614 near Middleton on the Wolds at 4:30pm on Sunday 19 September.

A grey Yamaha motorcycle and a yellow Peugeot car collided between Middleton on the Wolds and Market Weighton.

Sadly, the 49-year-old motorcycle rider sustained fatal injuries, while the passenger sustained life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Peugoet also suffered serious injuries.

Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends as they come to terms with their loss. They are being supported by specialist officers at this difficult time.

We are appealing for anyone who was driving in the area at the time that may have dashcam footage.  We would also appeal for anyone who saw the collision or the vehicles prior to the collision to call us on our non-emergency number 101 quoting log 427 of 19 September 2021.
