MOTORISTS experienced disruption on a busy South Yorkshire road when a lorry toppled over after its load shifted inside the trailer.

The articulated lorry, which was carrying bricks, crashed onto its side at a roundabout on Park Spring Road at Little Houghton, near the Dearne Valley Parkway in Barnsley.

Traffic built up as police dealt with the incident and the lorry driver was taken to hospital to be treated for injuries.

The driver’s cab window smashed as the truck hit the ground on its side, shattering glass and sending debris over the pavement.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman confirmed the MAN lorry, from haulage firm Supply & Drive Ltd, tipped over at around midday on Monday when its contents shifted.

The vehicle was removed from the road at around 6pm, she added.
