Officers are re-appealing for witnesses and anyone with information following a collision on the A19 northbound, around one mile prior to the A689 Wolviston junction.
The incident happened at around 1:45pm on Sunday 24th July, involving a white Mitsubishi Outlander and a cream and green coloured motor scooter.
Police are particularly interested in speaking with anyone who may have seen the scooter travelling at slow speed or stationary.
The rider of the scooter, a man aged in his sixties, suffered serious injuries and remains in a critically ill condition at James Cook University Hospital.
A 44-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of driving offences and he has now been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.
Members of the public have been invited to give their views on exciting plans for Redcar Central Station.
Conservation works to transform it from an empty, dilapidated building into a vibrant, more welcoming gateway to the town are planned, enabling it to function as both a leisure and retail hub as well as a key transport link.
Rail facilities including ticket machines, travel information and covered waiting areas would also be provided if plans are approved.
Nearly £6million from the Redcar Growth Zone and Welcome to Redcar and Cleveland Fund – a £20million investment from the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority – has been allocated to the project to deliver the refurbishment of the building, making it fully accessible to all.
A special drop-in session is being held today in the entrance foyer at Redcar Leisure Centre from 10am to 6pm.
People will be able to view the proposals and ask any questions about the project.
If approved, construction works would begin in spring 2023 for an estimated opening in early 2025.
The Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire visited Guisborough Town Hall at the weekend.
A plaque was unveiled at the special visit by Mrs Johanna Ropner to mark the recent opening of the historic building which has received an incredible transformation.
The Lord-Lieutenant, who was greeted by the Deputy Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Cllr Malcolm Head, is Her Majesty the Queen’s representative in the County.
