POLICE officers are appealing for information after a collision in Gisburn.

The collision occurred around 4-30 p.m. last Wednesday in Gisburn Road between a Ford Fiesta and a Peugeot 206 which were both heading in the direction of Settle.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries, and only the passenger of the Fiesta, a 56-year-old man, suffered a minor injury. He was treated at hospital before being allowed home the same day.

The road was blocked for around 90 minutes.

Officers investigating are trying to trace a white Ford Transit Van they believe was in Gisburn Road at the time of the collision and are appealing for anyone with any information to come forward.

PC Mike Smith from the Road Policing Unit said: “We believe a white, Ford Transit van was travelling along the opposite carriageway at the time of the collision and we are particularly keen to speak to the driver of that van so I would urge them to get in touch if they see or hear this appeal.

“I would also appeal to anyone else who may have been in the area at the time and may have witnessed this collision to come forward and contact police if they have not done so already.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 101 quoting log number LC-20121114-1060.
