A68 in both directions closed - delays due to an accident involving a lorry between the A6079 / B6342 and Barrasford Park.
POLICE have formally identified a man who died in a crash on the A68.
It happened last Friday when a van and a lorry collided on the outskirts of Darlington.
49-year-old Peter Hammond, from nearby Bolam village, was a front-seat passenger in the van. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 46-year-old man, who was a rear passenger in the van, suffered multiple injuries.
He was taken by air ambulance to the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough where his condition is 'critical but stable'.
The van driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and the lorry driver for death by careless driving.
Both have been released on police bail.
A68 is closed in both directions due to overturned lorry and recovery work at A6088 (Carter Bar).
Emergency Services are on the scene near to the England and Scotland Border where a lorry has overturned.
Police say the road will remain closed until at least 11:00 as a crane will be needed to recover the vehicle.
