Driver and passenger seriously hurt after crash with lorry on A1(M)

The A1(M) was closed for two hours on Friday, March 31, after a car crash which saw the occupants of a car suffer serious injuries.

Now, North Yorkshire Police[1] are appealing for information and dashcam footage of the accident which happened just before junction 49 (Dishforth Interchange) at 5.50am. A white Fiat 500 crashed into a HGV.

The occupants of the Fiat 500 suffered “serious” injuries in the crash and were taken to hospital.

This resulted in a stretch of the A1(M) being closed for two hours while the police conducted their accident investigation work. North Yorkshire Police said: “North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information in relation to a road traffic collision that occurred on A1(M).

“The collision occurred just before junction 49 (Dishforth Interchange) at 5.50am on Friday 31 March 2023.

“A white fiat 500 collided with a heavy goods vehicle. The occupants of the Fiat 500 received serious injuries and required treatment in hospital.

“The stretch of A1 was closed for two hours to allow officers to conduct investigation work at the scene and to allow for recovery to take place.”

Police are now looking for any witnesses or people with dashcam footage which saw the crash or either of the vehicles before the crash. If you have information, you can email [email protected], or contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Gary Dukes.
