POLICE are searching for a crucial witness to a crash that left a young girl with life changing injuries.

On Thursday, July 3 a 15 year old girl, who was cycling in Bishop Monkton, was in a collision with a blue Audi estate driving along Knaresborough Road towards Ripon.

She was flown to hospital in Leeds, but left with what police are calling life changing injuries.

Now police want to track down a woman seen walking her dog in the area. She had brown hair tied back in a ponytail, and was walking an Alsatian type dog at around 6pm, and officers think she could have crucial information about the crash at the crossroads of Knaresborough Road, Hungate and Moor Road in the Bishop Monkton.

Officers are urging the woman, or any other witnesses to the collision, to come forward with information.

Contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and ask for Traffic Constable Andy MacLeod or Harrogate Roads Policing Group, or email andy.macleod@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk quoting reference number 12140109240.
