Motor accident at Meadowhead - 21/07/09

Recommended Posts

Just had to turn round as Meadowhead is closed both directions, saw it land and then take off again! Right in the middle of the road!

 

Was pretty cool, but I hope the person inside is ok - I think someone has driven into a pedestrian, only one car, windscreen smashed inwards, solitary shoe in the middle of the road. Hope they are OK.

Meadowhead - the main road A61 from sheffield to Chesterfield via woodseats is closed at the alms houses on meadowhead due to a road traffic collison - morrisons is open and buses are been diverted via abbey lane bocking lane etc

Published Date: 22 July 2009

By Richard Marsden

 

AN ELDERLY pedestrian was airlifted to hospital with life-threatening injuries after being hit by a car as he crossed a Sheffield road.

The man, in his 80s, was struck by a Hyundai Accent car on Meadowhead at the junction with Little Norton Lane at about 1.45pm yesterday.

 

He was taken to the Northern General Hospital by air ambulance with serious head injuries.

 

The road was closed in both directions as police carried out investigations.

 

Officers have spoken to the woman driver of the car who has not been arrested.

 

Anyone with information should call the police accident witness line on 0114 2202970 and ask for PC Anthony Tankard at the Road Policing Group
