Man dies following crash on A166 in East Yorkshire

A man has died following a crash on the A166 in East Yorkshire yesterday.

A 72-year-old man from Leeds, who was the front seat passenger of the car, suffered severe injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The female driver of the car, also from Leeds, sustained head and neck injuries and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary along with the rear seat passenger, a 22-year-old woman, who sustained fractures to the arm.

A Citroen C3 in blue was travelling west on the A166 shortly after 1pm - near to the Full Sutton junction - when it appears to have lost control, going off the road, into a ditch and then striking a tree. Police are looking for witnesses to the incident.
