Young Sheffield man in 20s killed in Dronfield Bypass crash
A young Sheffield man died in a crash on the A61 Dronfield Bypass.
The man, who has not yet been named but is believed to be in his 20s, died in Monday night’s collision after his Volkswagen Golf left the carriageway.
A passing motorist raised the alarm at 9.30pm after spotting a car off the road in the undergrowth alongside the northbound carriageway of the bypass.
It came to rest among trees and bushes.
The body of a man was found inside the vehicle and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police closed the A61 for a number of hours while officers attended the scene and worked to recover the Golf and start their investigation.
The road was later reopened at 3.20am on Tuesday, July 13.
Officers are appealing for anyone who saw the car leave the road, or anyone who may have driven past and seen the car in the undergrowth to call Derbyshire Constabulary on 101.
