A 19-year-old woman, also from the Nottingham area, who was a passenger in the Mini Cooper, was airlifted to James Cooper Hospital in Middlesbrough and treated for what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries.
Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Great North Air Ambulance Service were both called out to help the man and woman. A spokesman for the Great North Air Ambulance Service, based at Durham Tees Valley Airport, near Darlington, said: "We were called out at 10.30am and it took us 23 minutes to get to the scene.
"We took a consultant doctor who found the female patient was conscious but in pain.
"She was given advanced pain relief to ease her suffering before being transferred to the helicopter and flown to Middlesbrough, which is a specialist trauma centre most appropriate for her needs."
A Humberside Police spokeswoman said the driver of the Volkswagen Golf, a 40-year-old man from Tibthorpe, East Yorkshire, was not injured.
The driver of the Ducato van, a 33-year-old man from Ravenscar, North Yorkshire, was also unhurt.
Police closed the road while investigations into the incident were carried out.
