Moped rider critical after York collision

Police in York are appealing for witnesses after a collision which left a moped rider with serious injuries.

It happened on January 8, on the A19, Shipton Road, at the junction of Howard Road, opposite the Mitre pub and involved a moped and a car.

The 21-year-old moped rider was taken to Leeds General Infirmary, where he remains in a critical condition.

“The collision happened at a busy time of day and I believe that there are a number of people who witnessed who have not yet contacted the police. I urge them to do so straight away.

“I also need to speak to you if you saw either vehicle prior to the incident and ask you to get in touch.”
