UPDATE: Car crashes in Bradford following police chase
A major crash in Bradford involving three cars, one being pursued by police, has closed Valley Road and partly closed Canal Road in Bradford.
The road has been sealed off by the Tesco supermarket as emergency services, including a Yorkshire Air Ambulance, deal with the inciden,t which occurred at the junction of Valley Road and Canal Road at about 12.45pm today.
Crews of paramedics and fire service rescuers have used cutting equipment to free trapped occupants in two cars.
A crowd of onlookers gathered around the police cordon watching the rescue.
Rescuers cut off the roof of a green Focus and used a spinal board to move one of the occupants.
A second car nearby was also surrounded by a team of about ten rescuers also using a spinal board.
A third silver car further along Canal Road away from the others was dented on its passenger side.
Debris can be seen scattered across the traffic light controlled junction.
Grandmother June Symes was waiting at the traffic lights on red in her Vauxhall Zafira car containing her daughter and baby grandson when she said she saw a sudden green flash in front of her car as the Focus sped past clipping her vehicle.
She said: “It hit me. We were all screaming but the car stopped. A police car was chasing it. The policeman jumped out and the driver of the green car ran out and he chased him across Tesco’s car park.
“The other car that was hit had flipped over about three times. There was another car too. My God, if it had been a few seconds later and the lights had gone green we would have been in the middle of it all.”
Rescuers working on the freed passenger from the Focus surrounded him for about 15 minutes before stabilising him enough to be transferred into a waiting ambulance.
The passenger from the second vehicle, a black car, was also taken away in an ambulance.
