More than a dozen vehicles damaged by debris falling from lorry on A1 near Bedale
A LORRY driver is being sought after 13 other vehicles were damaged by falling debris on the A1.
It occurred at around 7pm on Tuesday, on the north-bound carriage at Londonderry near Bedale.
The lorry did not stop at the scene.
Vehicles which were damaged include both lorries and cars, a number of which required recovering due to the extent of the damage.
Traffic Constable Tony Leonard, of North Yorkshire Police's Roads Policing Group, said: ”Thankfully, despite the large amount of damage that was caused to the vehicles, noone was injured as a result of the incident. "However, I do need to speak to the driver of the vehicle which shed the debris onto the road. I urge anyone who can help to identify them to come forward straight away.
“I am also appealing to the driver of the vehicle to contact the police as they may be unaware of the incident.”
Anyone who can assist with this enquiry is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Tony Leonard. Alternatively information can be emailed to email@example.com quoting reference number 12120170284.
