Emergency services were called to Thorne Road in Wheatley Hills on Tuesday after a major collision closed the carriageway and led to delays for motorists.

A bus, van and two other vehicles are understood to have been involved in the collision which took place close to the junction with Crossways, a short distance from the Wheatley Hotel.

Photos taken by one of the passengers on the bus show damage to the front of the First bus while a van and silver car also suffered extensive frontal damage in the incident.

Erin Hannah Slingsby said the collision occurred when a vehicle pulled out in front of the bus.

Debris from the smash was strewn across the carriageway but the road was able to re-open shortly afterwards.
