It happened at 9pm yesterday (October 2) on the B6291 in Coxhoe, at the junction with Park Hill, and involved a dark blue Ford Transit van and a grey Honda Civic. 

Sadly the driver of the Honda – a 38-year-old man – was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 28-year-old driver of the Transit van was arrested at the scene in connection with the collision. 

He has been interviewed by officers and released under investigation to allow for further enquiries to take place. 

A woman in her twenties, who was a passenger in the Transit van, suffered non-serious injuries and was taken to University Hospital of North Durham by paramedics.

A Nissan Qashqai, which was parked nearby, was also damaged in the collision. 

Officers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the collision, or who saw the vehicles prior to the incident.

They would also like to speak to anyone who may have any dash cam footage of the collision, or the vehicles beforehand.

Anyone with any information should call Durham Constabulary on 101, quoting incident number 483 of October 2.
