Woman seriously injured in crash near Ripon
A WOMAN has been seriously injured in a crash near Ripon.
The crash happened at about 9.40pm last night on the A61, when a 24-year-old woman driving a Ford Ka in the direction of Ripon lost control of the car close to Cascade garden centre.
The Ka veered across the carriageway and crashed into a tree, leaving the motorist with serious injuries.
A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the woman was taken to hospital, but was unable to converse with officers.
The spokesman said information had since come to light that a black medium sized car also travelling towards Ripon may also have been involved in the incident.
Anyone with information which could help police with their investigation, or who saw either vehicle prior to the crash, should contact Traffic Constable Stuart Holden on 101, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
