Sgt Michael Higginson, of the Road Policing Unit, said: “A man has lost his life following this collision and my thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this time.
“I would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or who was in the area at the time and may have dashcam from their vehicle, to get in touch.”
