The Yorkshire Air Ambulance was called to the scene and landed at a nearby car park.

Shipley Airedale Road was also closed for much of the afternoon leading to a pile up of rush-hour traffic in most directions. 

Police are now appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or anyone who may have dashcam footage of what happened.
