Emergency services rushed to the A64 near Flaxton, North Yorkshire, at around 8pm yesterday to reports of a collision involving a white HGV and a grey motorhome. The woman and two children, three of five people in the motorhome, were pronounced dead at the scene.  

A fourth passenger – a six-year-old boy – was dashed to hospital with a serious head injury, reports Yorkshire Live.

The driver of the motorhome – a 48-year-old man – was taken to hospital with serious but not believed to be life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the lorry was uninjured, North Yorkshire Police said today.

A stretch of the rural dual-carriageway between Flaxton and Barton-le-Willows was closed for more than 10 hours while police investigated the smash.

The road, which connects York with Scarborough on the North Sea coast, reopened at 6.45am today.

The crash happened near Jinnah Restaurant, a large Indian eatery just off the A64 thought to have been busy at the time.

Anyone who witnessed the accident or has any dashcam footage of the incident or was travelling in the area at the time, is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.
