Motorcyclist dies in Scarborough hospital following crash

A 23-year-old motorcyclist, involved in a collision with another vehicle, has died at Scarborough Hospital.

The accident happened at around 7:30pm on Friday August 21st, when the motorcycle rider collided with a white Toyota Yaris on Dunslow Road, Eastfield in Scarborough.

North Yorkshire Police are renewing their appeal for witnesses and information to assist the investigation.

In particular, they are asking people to come forward who recall seeing the distinctive motorcycle, a black Honda CB600 Hornet with a silver frame and blue piping, prior to the collision.

Officers say it would have been on the A64 as it travelled towards Scarborough from Malton or as it entered Dunslow Road in the direction of Cayton as it approached the collision scene outside the Vantage Toyota garage.
