Earlier today, the Yorkshire Ambulance Service confirmed a person was taken to hospital following the collision. South Yorkshire Police earlier confirmed the road was closed as enquiries into the incident took place. They are now appealing for witnesses, or for anyone with dashcam footage, to come forward to help with the investigation.
