The crash happened near Oakfield School, which teaches special needs pupils aged between 11 and 16, according to Hull Live.

The school said on its website that it remains closed on Friday "owing to a serious incident involving a member of public outside of the school gates".

Police are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time, or anyone who has relevant CCTV or dashcam footage, to come forward.
