Driver left with suspected broken leg after head-on Sheffield crash


A man in his 40s suffered serious injuries including a suspected broken leg after two cars collided head-on in Sheffield last night.

Firefighters had to cut the injured man out of his car following the collision between a Vauxhall Vectra and a Nissan Micra on Longley Lane, Longley, close to the junction with Crowder Road.

The incident happened at around 9.25pm last night, with the injured driver of the Nissan Micra later taken to the Northern General Hospital by ambulance with leg and chest injuries.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said three fire engines were sent to the scene.

He said the driver had some bad injuries around his knees and it was suspected one of his legs may have been broken.

Firefighters had to cut off the roof of the Micra car to get the man out safely.

He said two people in the Vauxhall Vectra had not been injured in the incident.

Police today said the 44-year-old man remains in hospital with serious injuries.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call police on 101.
