Car crash near Cross Butts Farm

Post by Sandylady » Thu Jul 20, 2006 9:01 pm

Yesterday there was a 5 car crash near to cross butts farm, I believe it was near where patrons of the Stables Restaurant leave the premises.

Could this have been caused by someone leaving there & trying to turn right?

I think there should be a sign there to instruct all drivers leaving there to turn left, drive the 150 yards or so to the roundabout & then they can get down into Whitby by going right round the roundabout. A lot safer IMHO.

Any one any opinions on this?

No Rod, It's on the A171 moor road out of Whitby. The A174 is the coast road out of town.

Hi Sandylady,
I still have the "Whitby Site" ... What are you trying to tell me about driving there .... on the "wrong" side of the road.

Happy Motoring ..... ron-s

Yes Rod. They all obviously did not leave enough stopping distance between cars either!

Sadly there has been a far more serious crash a few miles further out of Whitby on that same A171 though last Friday.
