An inquest has opened and adjourned into the death of a man killed after a moorland road crash.

Christopher Crowther died on Tuesday after his blue MG ZR car was in collision with a white Volkswagen Crafter van beside Graincliffe Reservoir on Otley Road, High Eldwick at 3.55pm.

He was 33-years-old and lived in Moor Close Lane, Queensbury, Bradford.

The Major Collision Enquiry Team is still investigating what happened but police said it was believed his car had been travelling west towards East Morton and the van had been travelling east.

Mr Crowther, whose name was released by police earlier this week, died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained in the incident.

Initial enquiries had suggested the MG had crossed into the opposite lane just before the collision.

Anyone with information about the collision is asked to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101.

Two men in the Volkswagen went to Bradford Royal Infirmary for check-ups.
