The black 320 BMW Estate span into the middle of the road but the 47-year-old male driver escaped the crash with no injuries.

An ambulance attended the incident to check over the 47-year-old driver of the red Ford Transit van who suffered an arm injury in the crash.

However, paramedics confirmed the arm injury was only 'minor' and the driver was taken to hospital for further examination.

Officers managed to allow morning commuters to pass through the scene as they cleared the scene with the road fully reopened at around 8am.

Anyone with information is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for David Minto, quoting reference number NYP-11042016-0050.
