North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about a serious road traffic collision at Alne, in the Hambleton area.
The collision occurred at the junction of Alne Road with Youlton Lane, also known as Plague Cross roads.
It happened shortly before 4.20pm on 7 April 2023 (Good Friday) and involved a Subaru Impreza and a Ford Fiesta.
A woman passenger in the Ford Fiesta sustained multiple serious life-changing injuries, and remains in hospital in a serious, but stable, condition. The driver of the Ford Fiesta sustained a broken wrist.
A child passenger in the Subaru Impreza sustained a head injury but has now been released from hospital.
The driver of the Subaru Impreza, a 31-year-old woman, was arrested at the scene and has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
The stretch of road was closed for six hours so officers could investigate the scene and allow the vehicles to be recovered.
We are appealing for witnesses of the collision, or anyone who recalls seeing the vehicle(s) prior to the collision, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation.
If you can help, please email [email protected], or contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Peter Keenen.
