Police said the Golf had been involved in a collision with a black Astra on the southbound carriageway and had ended up on its roof on the other side of the central reservation.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said three occupants from the Golf had been taken to hospital as a precaution, but their injuries were not believed to be serious.

He said no one from the other car was thought to have been injured.

Police are still investigating, and no arrests have been made.

The road was closed in both directions but reopened fully about an hour after the collision.
