A driver wrote off their car on the A63 after travelling “too fast” in treacherous conditions before being reported by police for driving on a provisional licence. Officers from Humber Roads Police said the driver, who had crashed near Brough, was “fortunate” to escape without injury after they attended the scene in the morning of Saturday, June 6. They warned that the driver had been going too fast when there was “lots of standing water” on the roads after weeks of consistent sunshine was disrupted by heavy rain last week.
