Another patient was taken to hospital by road ambulance.

Three other air ambulances attended the scene.

Police officers from three forces were involved, with Cumbria, Lancashire and West Yorkshire police forces assisting colleagues from North Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service also had personnel at the scene, with firefighters from Hawes and Settle, as well as an fire service officer, attending.

The road reopened on Sunday evening after being closed all afternoon to allow the collision investigation unit to conduct an investigation of the scene.

Officers would particularly like to speak to anyone with dash cam footage of the incident or any of the vehicles involved.

Please dial 101 and pass the information to the Force Control Room, quoting reference 12180178330


  1. The sooner a blanket 40mph speed limit is introduced in the national park the sooner we stop seeing incidents like this happening every weekend .

  2. Just awful, my thoughts and prayers go to all those that are injured, hope you all make a full recovery.
