Male remains in a serious but stable condition following A19 smash

Police investigating a collision on the A19 are making a fresh appeal for witnesses to come forward.

It occurred at 5.40pm on Wednesday 8 January 2014, on the A19 Shipton Road, at the junction of Howard Road, opposite the Mitre pub.

The collision involved a black Ford Fiesta and an orange Aprilia moped, which had travelled from Poppleton along the A1237.

As a result in the incident, the 21-year-old York man riding the moped was taken to the Leeds General Infirmary, with serious injuries, where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

Traffic Sergeant Julian Pearson, of the Force’s Roads Policing Group, “If you witnessed the collision and have not yet contact the police, I urge you to do so straight away.

“I am particularly keen to speak to anyone who saw the orange Aprilia moped as it travelled along the A1237 as it headed from Poppleton towards the A19, and ask them to get in touch.”

Anyone who can assist officers to progress this investigation should contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Roger Walker. Alternatively, information can be emailed to
