Men cheat DEATH following serious road traffic collision on Leeds Road
EXCLUSIVE: Police are appealing for information following a serious road traffic collision on Leeds Road, Bradford at about 12.41am today.
The collision involved a white Volvo lorry, a blue BMW M5, a grey Audi A4 and a silver Vauxhall Corsa, and happened close to the junction with Wensleydale Road.
On arrival there appeared to be no serious injuries, but police were later contacted by hospital staff who said that two men had been admitted with injuries which appeared to be consistent with a road traffic collision.
One of the men, a 22-year-old from Bradford, was transported to Leeds General Infirmary with internal injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening.
Another man, 21-years-old and also from Bradford, suffered a broken collarbone and ankle injuries.
The Yorkshire Standard received an eye-witness report at the scene of the incident that those involved “needed medical help”.
One was said to be in such a state he could “barely walk” and another was “bleeding from the head”.
The eye-witness also said that he spoke to the lorry driver, who said the men were “lucky” to have avoided hitting his lorry head on.
Leeds Road was closed to allow for recovery of the vehicles and was re-opened at about 7.20am today.
Last month, a 70-year-old man on a mobility scooter was struck by a car crossing the same road.
Enquiries into this incident are continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Safer Roads and Neighbourhood Support team on 101.
