Have your say

A young driver was arrested today after a two-car crash which closed one of Doncaster’s main roads for three hours.

A Ford Puma and a Fiat 500 were in collision on the A19 near Toll Bar just after 8am and rush hour traffic was diverted through Carcroft.

Firefighters spent almost an hour releasing a man and woman trapped in the Fiat and they were both taken to Doncaster Royal Infirmary with injuries believed to be non-life threatening.

The driver of the Ford, a 24-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

The A19 between Adwick Lane and Bentley Moor Lane was closed until 11am.
