Police appeal after 27-year-old dies in car collision

Police are appealing for help after a 27-year-old man was killed when he was struck by a silver Range Rover in Stokesley in North Yorkshire. The man, who was from Stokesley, died yesterday afternoon following the crash on the town's North Road.

A fifteen year old boy was arrested close to the scene and police are now appealing for help to find the occupants of the Range Rover. The vehicle was seized by officers at the scene and is now being forensically tested.

'I am appealing to anyone who saw a silver Range Rover with a personalised number plate driving through the town on Saturday morning in the hours and minutes leading up to the crash. And, to anyone who saw the occupants run from the vehicle after it crashed.

Despite the snow, many people were out and about in Stokesley on Saturday morning and may have seen the Range Rover driving around town. I urge these people to come forward and talk to the police.

This is a tragic incident which has left the victim’s family utterly devastated'

– Detective Superintendent Steve Smith, North Yorkshire Police

The family of the 27 year old victim are being comforted by police liaison officers.
