A purple BMW motorcycle was traveling eastbound on the A64 when it collided with a white Force EcoSport traveling in the same direction.

Emergency services witnessed the incident, which occurred shortly before 2:20 p.m. on Wednesday, September 15, but the motorcyclist, a man in his 60s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A woman who was traveling as a passenger on a motorcycle was taken to hospital. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

An investigation into the circumstances of the collision is underway.

The incident was also reported to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) as a police training exercise was underway in the area at the time.

The IOPC oversees the police complaints system in England and Wales. They set the standards by which the police must deal with complaints and investigate the most serious cases.

Police forces are required by law to refer certain incidents to the IOPC that include certain complaints that include an allegation of serious corruption or assault; misconduct incidents, for example, any suggestion that a criminal offense has been committed or that a serious injury has been caused; if a person has had direct or indirect contact with the police at the time or shortly before, they have been seriously injured or died.

The A64 was closed for several hours in both directions from early afternoon to late evening yesterday, but has since reopened.

Anyone who has witnessed the incident, has seen any of the vehicles involved in the moments leading up to it, or has footage of the dashcam, is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police.

Dial 101 and select option 2, and ask for the Major Collision Investigation Team, or send an email [email protected] citing reference NYP-15092021-0232.
