“Torrential downpour of snow and sleet” believed to be a factor in A1(M) collision
Main article content
A three-vehicle collision occurred on the A1(M) near Ainderby Quernhow at around 3.05pm on Wednesday (30 March 2022).
At the time, the weather conditions were described a “torrential downpour of snow and sleet”.
The drivers of the white BMW 1 Series, black BMW 3 Series and blue Suzuki Vitara said the sudden change in conditions led to a loss of control.
The woman and man in the Suzuki were taken to hospital as a precaution after suffering seatbelt and airbag-related chest injuries.
All three vehicles had to be safely recovered which meant the full closure of lane one while the emergency services and highways worked at the scene.
The south-bound carriageway fully reopened just after 5pm.
Witnesses to the collision or motorists with dash-cam footage are asked to email [email protected] or call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Jack Dodsworth. Please quote reference number 12220054004.
