Police are appealing for witnesses after a van collided with a tree near Ilkley.

The Mercedes Sprinter was travelling along the A65 Coutances Way towards Ilkley when it left the road at around 4.10am on Saturday.

A 22-year-old man, from Shipley, was taken to hospital with serious arm injuries, but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. 

Officers say enquiries into the incident are continuing, but they believe that the van crossed the carriageway before it hit the tree.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or saw the vehicle's movements beforehand is asked to call the Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support Team on 101.
