His vehicle was then involved in a collision with a third vehicle, a HGV that was being driven by the man from North Lincolnshire.
The Stockton-on-Tees man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The A1 northbound, south of Catterick, was closed for more than 17 hours after the crash.
The Highways Agency said the road had needed emergency resurfacing because of a corrosive spillage from one of the vehicles involved in the crash.
