A woman driver arrested in connection with a fatal crash in North Yorkshire has been released on bail.

The 28-year-old was arrested after a 24-year-old man was killed after getting out of a car on the A19 on the outskirts of Northallerton on Tuesday.

The man was a Romanian national who had been visiting friends in Stockton-on-Tees over Christmas, police said.

The man, in his 50s, had stopped his car on the southbound carriageway of the A1 near Allerton Park when he was hit by a lorry.

The lorry driver was arrested in connection with the collision.

North Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses to both crashes to contact them.
