An 80-year-old woman has been left with serious injuries following a crash involving an ambulance responder car.

An appeal is being launched after the woman, a passenger in a vehicle, was seriously hurt in the smash with a white Skoda Octavia Yorkshire Ambulance Service fast responder car.

Emergency services were called to the collision on the A6135 in Hoyalnd, Barnsley, at about 1.10pm on October 9.

The ambulance responder car collided with a grey Peugeuot 3008.

Both cars were driving along Sheffield Road in the direction of Chapeltown, Sheffield, when they collided near to the entrance of Parkside Farm Shop.

The passenger inside the Peugeot 3008, an 80-year-old woman from Barnsley, suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital, where she remains.

The driver of the Skoda Octavia, a 46-year-old man from Barnsley, was taken to hospital with minor injuries and has since been discharged, as has the 82-year-old Barnsley man who was driving the Peugeot.

Inquiries are ongoing and police officers are keen to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either vehicles before the incident to get in touch.
