The Kia left the road before colliding with a parked red Nissan Serena. The van also left the road before colliding with a wooden fence.

The driver of the Kia was taken to Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital with life-threatening chest injuries and a broken leg.

His passenger suffered life-threatening chest injuries.

The van driver suffered a deep cut to his right foot.
