A man said he "rushed to the scene" of a crash this morning after hearing his workers were involved in a head-on collision.

Les Robinson, 59, of ABC Scaffolding, said he arrived at the A164 at Carnaby to find his company's Ford Box Van completely "written off".

"Fortunately none of my mine were injured," said Les, "three of the lads were travelling to work at a construction site in Driffield. The crash resulted in a head-on collision. The truck is definitely a write-off.

Police remain at the scene of the incident, after being called to the head-on collision between Les' company's vehicle and a silver Ford Puma at 7.30 am.

The driver of the silver car was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary with potentially "life-changing injuries", and two further vehicles, a black Suzuki Alto and blue Peugeot 406, were also involved.

"I rushed down to the scene," Les added. "There were three vehicles. A silver Puma and a dark blue Peugeot and my vehicle on the other side of the road."

Les added: "I would like to thank the emergency services, the ambulance, police and fire brigade who were excellent - they were very quick to cut the guy out."

Les said a further man, who he did not know, was first on the scene to treat the injured.

"I don't know who the other guy was, but there was a trained medic before the ambulance service arrived. He brought some medical equipment out of his vehicle and started tending to injured people."

A police spokesman added: "Road closures are in place at the junction of the A614 at Carnaby with Bridlington Bay Road at the roundabout, at Hairsthorpe Crossroads and Station Road at Burton Agnes.

"The police helicopter has been deployed as part of the investigation into what caused the accident, and HGVs are being diverted away from the area prior to Burton Agnes."
