Two separate and unrelated accidents involving farm machinery have seen roads closed while vehicles were recovered.
In North Yorkshire a green Mitsubishi Shogun was travelling towards Scarborough on the A170 west of Thornton-le-Dale when it collided with a tractor at around 10.45am on Saturday (13 October).
The Mitsubishi had previously been requested to stop by police and had failed to do so.
As a result of the collision, the tractor overturned, leaving the tractor driver and a passenger from the Mitsubishi with minor injuries.

Another passenger from the Mitsubishi received serious injuries and was taken to Scarborough Hospital for treatment.
The road was closed until 5pm. Police are keen to trace anyone who saw the Mitsubishi Shogun before the collision or who witnessed the collision itself.
A 29-year-old man from Redcar was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and failing to stop.
In the second incident, in Lincolnshire, a potato harvester overturned while it was being pulled by a tractor along the A46 around the Swinderby roundabout near Lincoln.
