TWO men left fighting for life in a collision which killed their pal on the A1M in South Yorkshire remain in hospital.

The men, aged 35 and 58, were involved in a pile-up last Sunday which closed the motorway for hours. The 35-year-old, from Bedford, remains in Doncaster Royal Infirmary and is now believed to be out of danger.

But the 58-year-old, from Redditch, is at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield, where he is still seriously ill.

The driver of their white HGV, a 47-year-old man from Leeds, died in the smash between junctions 36 and 37 near Doncaster at 6.10am.

Their lorry hit a green truck which had stopped to help after a silver Vauxhall Astra was in collision with the rear of a different white HGV.

The driver of the Vauxhall, a 26-year-old Doncaster man, was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and has been bailed until mid-May.
