3:22pm Thursday 27th September 2012 in News
POLICE are currently dealing with a collision on the A19 north-bound carriageway near South Kilvington, Thirsk .
A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said: "The collision was reported at 2.10pm today and involves a HGV which struck a Vauxhall Corsa which then hit an Audi parked in a lay-by while the driver was changing his wheel.
"The driver of the Corsa is currently being freed from the vehicle but thankfully has sustained only minor injuries. The Audi driver (changing his wheel) was uninjured."
The driver of the HGV, a German national, has been arrested on suspicion of careless driving.
"The north-bound carriageway is closed at the roundabout at the junction with the A19 trunk road from York - known locally as Thircon roundabout - with traffic diverted through Long Street in Thirsk and rejoining the carriageway at the South Kilvington junction," she added.
"This is to allow the casualty and the vehicles to be recovered and will be reopened as soon as possible."
