It happened just before 1pm on the northbound carriageway - just before the slip road to the A1018 which is to the north of Dalton Park.
Two vehicles were involved, a blue Ford Ranger, driven by a 49-year-old man from Thornaby on Teesside and an Iveco lorry, driven by a man aged 26 from Bradford.
The Ranger was driving in the inside lane when for some reason it veered across the carriageway, and hit the central reservation.

It’s thought he may have been taken ill at the wheel.
A post mortem will now be carried out.
