​Police are appealing for witnesses to a one-vehicle collision which left a man with potentially life-changing injuries.

It happened shortly after 6.05pm last night (Thursday, July 2) on Butterwick Road, in Fishburn.

A black Ford Fiesta, which was travelling south, left the road and collided with a tree.

The passenger suffered potentially life-changing injuries and was taken to James Cook University Hospital, in Middlesbrough.

The driver was left with serious injuries. He was taken to North Tees Hospital.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the collision, or anyone who has any information that could help their investigation.

In particular they would like to trace a small white 4x4, possibly a Nissan Juke, and a grey car, possibly a Volkswagen Golf, which drove past the collision.
