A MAN has died and a woman seriously injured in a crash on a coastal road.

Police were called to the A165 near Cayton Bay, on the Bridlington road just south of Scarborough, at about 9.25am on Sunday.

A red Suzuki Ignis, which was travelling south towards Bridlington and a white Kia Sportage, which was towing a caravan, travelling north towards Scarborough, had collided.

The driver of the Suzuki Ignis, a 62-year-old man from Nottinghamshire, died at the scene.

A 55-year-old female passenger, also from Nottinghamshire, was taken to Hull Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Kia, a 59-year-old man from Whitby, was uninjured. A female passenger travelling in the Kia was taken to Scarborough Hospital with chest injuries.

The road was closed to allow the Forensic Collision Investigation Unit to conduct a thorough examination of the scene. It reopened at 4.10pm

North Yorkshire Police said inquiries were continuing to determine the circumstances around the collision and officers are appealing to anyone who was travelling along the road, who witnessed the collision or either vehicle prior to it, to contact them.
