A TEENAGER is in a ‘life-threatening’ condition in hospital after a car hit a telegraph pole in Rotherham.

Two other teenagers were also injured after the collision at 11.30pm on Friday. Police said a blue Audi A3 was travelling from Brecks towards the Stag roundabout on the A6021 Wickersley Road when the driver appeared to lose control on a right-hand bend near the junction with Bentfield Avenue.

The car left the road, collided with a telegraph pole and came to rest on its roof on top of a boundary stone wall.

An 18-year-old man from Rotherham town centre, who was a passenger in the Audi, sustained life-threatening head, spine and lung injuries.

He was kept overnight at Rotherham District General Hospital.

The Audi driver, a 19-year-old man, and another passenger, a 15-year-old boy, both from the Broom area, both sustained minor head injuries and were detained in the hospital.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or the manner of driving prior to the collision, should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident 1260 of Friday April 6.
