Man dies and couple injured in A168 crash

A 61-year-old man has died and a couple have been injured in a road accident near Boroughbridge in North Yorkshire.

The accident happened on the A168 near Marton-cum-Grafton early on Saturday, North Yorkshire Police said.

A Renault being driven by the 61-year-old man from Leeds was in collision with a Citroen C4 carrying a couple from the Ripon area.

The Renault driver was pronounced dead at the scene and the injured couple were taken to Harrogate hospital.

Police would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either of the vehicles before the incident.

Officers are particularly interested in speaking to the driver of a van, who was not involved in the collision, but who is believed to have hit the central barrier just before the incident.
