A woman and two children have died in a crash involving a motorhome and a lorry.

The woman, 44, a nine-year-old girl and a five-year-old boy were passengers in the grey motorhome which collided with a white HGV on the A64, near York, on Tuesday night, North Yorkshire Police said.

A spokeswoman said a six-year-old boy, who was also travelling in the motorhome, suffered a serious head injury, and the driver, a 48-year-old man, was also taken to hospital with serious injuries which are not thought to be life-threatening.

The lorry driver was not injured, she added.

She said: “The tragic incident happened at around 8pm near Jinnah Restaurant and involved a white HGV and a grey motorhome.

“The road was closed between Barton-le-Willows and Flaxton for several hours while emergency services worked at the scene. It reopened at 6.45am today (Wednesday).

“Anyone who witnessed the incident or has any dashcam footage of the incident, or was travelling in the area at the time, is asked to contact police.”
