The A170 in Pickering was closed for several hours today as emergency services including Paramedics, North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue along with North Yorkshire Police attended a car crash incident which involved a single vehicle, being driven by a man thought to be in his 50's.

Emergency services were called to the scene just after 10am this morning and discovered a silver Honda Accord saloon car which had swerved off of the road, then across the pavement before becoming embedded into a stone wall.

Paramedics attempted to save the driver who was the only occupant of the vehicle, but shortly afterwards the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

A driver of another vehicle who arrived moments after the incident said - although he had not witnessed the incident, there were no signs of any other vehicle being involved.

The A170 was completely closed until 1347hrs while police officers collected evidence as part of their investigation.

Local diversions were in place for light vehicles and small commercials. However, large goods vehicles were forced to wait, or take a diversion route through Malton, then along to Helmsley.

Traffic Constable Ian Barratt, of Malton Roads Policing Group, said: "We are trying to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the collision and I am urging anyone with information to come forward.

"If you saw the incident itself or the vehicle prior to the collision, please contact the police with information."

Anyone who can help the investigation is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on Telephone number: 101 - select option 2 - and ask for Ian Barratt or Malton Roads Policing Group, quoting reference number NYP-22022012-0104.
