North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about a serious crash that left a young child and five others with injuries.
It happened on the A59 near Hopperton shortly before 8pm on Saturday (16 April).
It involved a blue Vauxhall Zafira and a silver Seat Leon.
A six-year-old boy in the Seat was taken to hospital with serious injuries, where his condition was described as stable.
Three other occupants of the car, all from Lancashire and aged between 16 and 25 years old, were taken to hospital with minor injuries and were later discharged.
The occupants of the Vauxhall Zafira, a man and woman in their thirties from the York area, were treated for minor injuries in hospital and later released.
The stretch of road was closed for around six hours while officers investigated the scene and to allow the vehicles to be recovered.
We are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anyone who recalls seeing the vehicles prior to the collision, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation.
In particular, we are appealing for dash camera or CCTV footage of road users on the A59 between 7.40pm and 7.50pm.
If you can help, please contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for PC Jack Dodsworth. You can also email [email protected]
