THE pedestrian who was hurt in a crash on a North Yorkshire road yesterday has died, police have said.

The 35-year-old man was walking on the A171 Scarborough to Whitby road at about 5.40pm yesterday when he was hit by a black Ford Focus.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the man was believed to have been crossing the road near the entrance to the Flask Inn and Fylingdales Service Station when the collision occurred.

He sustained serious injuries and was taken to Scarborough Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Focus was travelling north in the direction of Whitby and was being driven by a 34-year-old man from Redcar, who was uninjured in the incident.

The road was closed for about six-and-a-half hours while officers conducted a detailed examination of the scene, and officers have urged anyone who saw the collision to contact them. Police also want to speak to anyone who saw either the Focus or the pedestrian prior to the crash.
