Our thoughts are with Michael’s loved ones at this very sad time

Police have now confirmed the identity of the 89-year-old man who sadly died in the A59 collision near Moor Monkton last month.

He was Michael Rowbottom (pictured), from York, who was previously headmaster for a number of years at English Martyrs school in York until his retirement in the early 1990s.

Michael leaves behind his children John, Helen and Gerard, who miss him sorely.

His late wife, Molly, died in May last year.

We are continuing to appeal to anyone who was in the area at the time of the collision and has any information to get in touch.

The collision happened at around 5.10pm on Wednesday 25 August and involved three vehicles – a red Audi A3 travelling towards York, and a black Audi Q5 and a silver Mini, both of which were travelling in the opposite direction.

Michael, who was driving the Audi A3, was taken to hospital but sadly died.
