Car flipped in collision near Whixley

Three people were taken to hospital after their car left the road and flipped into a field in an accident near Whixley.

A 12-year-old girl, a 38-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man were all treated in hospital before being released after the collision at around 6pm on Saturday, October 6.

A blue Renault Clio, driven by the 38-year-old woman, was travelling towards Boroughbridge along the B6265 when it was in collision with a green Audi TT.

The Clio left the road and ended up in a field upside down.

The 21-year-old man driving the Audi was not injured.

“I am particularly keen to speak with the driver of a small car, believed to be a Honda Jazz which was in the area at the time of the collision.”
