New appeal for witnesses to fatal road traffic collision on A19, Teesside
Police are re-appealing for witnesses to come forward following a road traffic collision in which a 78-year-old man died.
The collision, which took place at around 2.10pm on Tuesday, August 6 on the A19 northbound, around one mile south of the A174 turn off to Redcar, involved a heavy goods vehicle and a green Vauxhall Corsa.
The driver of the Vauxhall Corsa, a 78-year-old man from the Manchester area died in the collision.
The 54-year-old driver of the heavy goods vehicle was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. He remains on bail pending further enquiries.
PC John Roberts, from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, said: “Although we have spoken to a number of witnesses who saw the aftermath of the collision, we would like to appeal to anyone who saw the collision itself to speak to us.
"Someone must have witnessed what happened in this tragic incident. We would urge anyone with information to contact us on the non emergency number 101.”
The crash happened on the same day as another fatal collision on the A19. The earlier collision, involving two lorries and a car, led to the death of 24-year-old lorry driver Andrew Nimmo, from Murton, near Seaham, County Durham, and occurred on the southbound carriageway, near Thornaby at 5.25am.
