NEWS IN BRIEF: Men hurt in road smash

Have your say

A DRIVER needed hospital treatment for a broken arm following a five-vehicle crash in South Yorkshire.

The 55-year-old man was driving a silver Volkswagen Golf travelling east on the A616 at Tankersley when his car was hit by an HGV skip loader.

The crash happened at around 3.15pm on Tuesday, as traffic slowly approached the roundabout at the junction with the A61.

The Golf smashed into the back end of a Citroen Berlingo van, pushing it off the road and down a grass bank. A Mercedes van and an Audi Q5 were then hit by the Volkswagen.

The Golf driver was trapped in his car for around an hour before firefighters cut him free. Two other men also suffered minor injuries.

Call police on 101, quoting incident 742 of August 21.
