Police are appealing for a lorry driver to come forward after a crash on the A1 during the early hours of today.

North Yorkshire Police said a heavy goods vehicle (HGV) with a white trailer attached had collided with a silver Nissan Juke.

The HGV did not stop at the scene and police believe the driver may be unaware that they were involved in a collision.

It happened at around 1.20am on the northbound carriageway between junction 47 (Allerton Park) and junction 48 (Boroughbridge).

A spokesman said: "Officers are appealing to HGV drivers who were on the A1 northbound around the time and place of the collision to contact them.

"The occupants of the Nissan - a man, woman and two children - were uninjured.

"The central barrier of the motorway was slightly damaged as a result of the collision."

The driver and anyone else who witnessed the collision or who can help to identify the HGV involved are asked to contact North Yorkshire Police.
