A spokeswoman said no injuries were reported after the incident.

Adam Carter, a Liberal Democrat councillor on Rotherham Borough Council, said: "I am devastated there has been yet another serious collision on Bawtry Road. Changes to improve safety on Bawtry Road can't come soon enough.

"We had agreement late last year for a new crossing and a speed limit reduction on the road, but it's gone quiet. I'm calling on the council to make these changes as soon as possible."
