In a separate incident, one of Doncaster’s busiest roads was sealed off by police yesterday following a collision on the street

Sandringham Road in Intake was taped off near to the Kenberne electrical store.

Motorists were being diverted away from the scene which is also near to the Clever Clogs day nursery and China Red Chinese takeaway.

Bus service 65 is also being diverted via Devonshire Road, Shaftesbury Avenue and Tudor Road in both directions.

Sunday was the third day in a row that a crash has caused problems on the borough’s roads.

A takeaway delivery driver was taken to hospital with lower limb injuries after crashing in to a tree on Saturday night.

Fire crews from Doncaster and Thorne fire stations were called out to Sour Lane, Fishlake, Doncaster, at 8.30pm to reports of a driver who had collided with a tree.
