Traffic was held following the collision, with National Highways Yorkshire reporting queues stretching for four miles.

The crash happened on the same evening that three men, one aged 18 and two 19-year-olds, were killed when a car came off the road and hit a tree at Kiveton Park.

Police have said specialist officers are supporting the families, and people have been paying tribute to the young men this morning.
