A64 lorry smash driver ‘improving’

First published in

A lorry driver whose 30-tonne HGV crashed into a bridge on the A64 was yesterday said to be improving.

The driver survived the devastating crash, which smashed most of the driver’s cab, without serious injury and was taken to York Hospital by an air ambulance sent by emergency services who initially feared the worst.

The vehicle, which was carrying grain, hit the Castle Howard flyover two miles from Malton at about 2.25pm on Tuesday, causing extensive damage and closing the westbound carriageway.

The lorry driver, whose vehicle was from Clive Warcup hauliers near Driffield, was treated for a cut to his head and abdominal pains, a police spokesman said.
