Two people have died within the space of three hours after separate crashes on the same stretch of road near the Humber Bridge.
A 57-year-old woman who was a backseat passenger in a car travelling up the A15 died when the vehicle collided with a JCB towing a trailer between Bonby and Barton.
In a separate crash a few miles further south on the A15, between Barnetby Top and Elsham, just over two hours later, a motorcyclist hit two cars. The biker, who was riding a 750 GS motorcycle that collided with a Fiat 500 and a Hyundai, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The road between Barnetby Top and the Humber Bridge was closed for more than 13 hours on Monday and into the early hours of Tuesday morning as emergency services worked around the clock to investigate the collisions.
Queues were reported in the area stretching back for miles in the direction of the Humber Bridge as police, fire crews and the ambulance service descended on the scene.
The road only re-opened at about 4am on Tuesday morning, 13 hours after it was first shut.
Referencing the first crash, a spokesman for Humberside Police said: “At around 2:45pm yesterday (Monday 25 February) on the A15 northbound just after the Brigg Road Bridge over the dual carriageway there was a serious road traffic collision.
“A Toyota Prius car was involved in a collision with a yellow JCB Telehandler towing a trailer.
“Sadly the rear seat passenger, a 57 year-old woman from Scunthorpe, was pronounced dead at the scene.”
The force also confirmed the news regarding the motorcyclist involved in the second crash. Their statement on that read: “At around 5.25pm yesterday (Monday 25 February) on the A15 northbound between Barnetby Top and Elsham there was a serious road traffic collision.
“A 750 GS motorcycle collided with a Fiat 500 and a Hyundai. Sadly the motorcycle rider was pronounced dead at the scene.”
