UPDATED: Man bailed following serious York crash
A MAN has been bailed by police following a crash in which a 22-year-old woman suffered potentially life changing injuries.
The 33-year-old York man - initially said by police to be 18 - was arrested after allegedly leaving the scene of a crash in Scarcroft Road soon after 6am yesterday.
He was thought to have been driving a Suzuki Swift carrying two passengers which crashed into a parked car and overturned.
One of the passengers, a 22-year-old York woman was cut from the wreckage by firefighters and is today in a serious but stable condition in hospital in Leeds, after suffering injuries to her legs and face, police said.
A second passenger in the vehicle, a man, was checked over at the scene by paramedics but did not require hospital treatment.
The driver is alleged to have left the scene of the incident but was arrested a short time later after officers tracked his movements through the South Bank area to a nearby football field where he was arrested.
Police are appealing to anyone who either witnessed the collision or saw the silver Suzuki Swift prior to the crash to contact them.
Traffic Constable Andy MacLeod, said: “We have spoken to a number of witnesses but it’s vital that anyone else who can assist the investigation but has not contacted us yet, gets in touch.
“It’s very important that we gather every piece of information about the crash – no matter how small or insignificant you think your call would be - please do not hesitate to contact us. Witnesses who either saw the car before the crash as well as those who witnessed the actual collision are urged to get in touch as soon as they can.”
If you can help, please call North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Andy Macleod.
The 33-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of several motoring offences and assaulting a police officer during the execution of their duty. He has been given police bail pending further inquires.
