Press release from the police

Police are appealing for witnesses following a fatal road traffic collision on the A658 in Pool Bank, near Leeds.

The Major Collision Enquiry Team would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the incident which took place at about 7.30pm on the A658 in Pool Bank, Pool-in-Wharfedale on August 31.

It occurred after a Suzuki GSXR 600 motorbike which was heading northbound from Otley Road was in collision with a VW Golf heading in the opposite direction.

A 37-year-old man from the Leeds area riding the Suzuki sadly died as a result of the collision.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information should contact The Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101.

  1. There was a second accident on the same day at lunch time. This was at the junction of Old Pool Bank and Pool Bank New Road involving a car and cyclist ,though apparently it did not involve serious injuries. How long can Police and Council representatives underestimate the dangers of this road and minimize future risks associated with potential large scale developments ?
