Witness appeal to fatal collision between car and motorbike on A166 between Gate Helmsley and Dunnington

Police are appealing for witnesses to a fatal collision between a car and a motorbike to contact them.


At around 12.35pm Tuesday 23 June 2020, a blue Honda Jazz and a white KTM Duke motorbike collided on the A166 between Gate Helmsley and Dunnington. Police, air ambulance and fire and rescue services attended but very sadly the rider of the motorbike, a man in his sixties, died at the scene due to his injuries. His family have been notified.

The female passenger of the Honda was cut from the vehicle and taken to York District Hospital with minor injuries. The female driver is currently assisting police with their enquiries.

Officers are appealing to anyone who was travelling in the area at the time, who may have seen either vehicle prior to the incident or the incident itself, to contact them. They would also be interested to hear from anyone who captured dash-cam footage of either vehicle or the collision itself.

Anyone with information is asked to dial 101, select option 2 and ask to speak to Emma Drummond. You can also email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. – please quote reference number 12200106035.
