West Yorkshire Police (WYP) are looking for witnesses to establish what happened.

“We are continuing to build up a picture of the exact circumstances of the collision in which he died, and we are still keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or the movements of any of the three vehicles involved in the time leading up to it.

“If anyone was driving in the area at the time and has any relevant dash-cam footage, we would also like to hear from them.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team via 101 quoting Operation Pastelmount.
