LATEST NEWS: PCSO reveals BMW involved in horror smash had been issued warning a week ago

RESIDENTS woke up to “screaming” after a serious crash which left two people in hospital.

West Yorkshire Police cordoned off New Road, in Yeadon, at its junction with Kirk Lane and Dibb Lane, after a collision today.

A police officer at the scene outlined there had been a road traffic collision involving one car in the early hours of the morning.

There was a black BMW completely smashed, facing sideways, in the middle of Dibb Lane.

One of the car’s wheels was separated from the vehicle and sat face upwards on the path.

The car looked as if it was bent into two pieces at a right angle, such was the damage.

Its left side was crumpled, with debris littered across the road.

A lamppost, on the left side of Dibb Lane heading away from New Road, had been ripped from its normal position and was laid on the floor.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

All three emergency services - police, ambulance and fire - attended the crash.

A spokesperson for Rawdon Fire Station said they received a call at 3.15am to go to the scene.

The spokesperson added that police and ambulance personnel were already there when fire crews arrived, with paramedics working on a woman who had managed to escape the car.

Firefighters cut some of the front of the car to allow more space for the paramedics to treat the woman.

The spokesperson from Rawdon Fire Station said the woman was breathing, but was rushed to Leeds General Infirmary (LGI).

They added that a male - the driver - had also been in the car, but had got out.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) confirmed that it took two patients to LGI on this morning.

It was called at around 3.10am and sent two ambulances, a Clinical Supervisor and a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) to the scene.

YAS left at roughly 4.15am.

The cordon was put in place at around 6am, according to an officer at the scene.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

A resident who lives nearby said they were woken by people screaming at around 3.15am.

Another person who lives nearby said they were also asleep when they heard the crash.

They said the car appeared to have crossed the junction before being in collision with a lamppost.

The resident added that they saw a man running up and down the street shouting, and another person laid in the road.

A Forensic Collision Investigation van was parked up on New Road in the morning and multiple officers were investigating the scene to establish what happened.

Evidence markers placed within the cordon suggested the car came over a grass verge from Kirk Lane, before crossing the junction and being in collision with the fallen lamppost on Dibb Lane (see below).

One Forensic Office analysed the BMW for around half-an-hour, taking a number of items away in evidence bags.

An individual, who lived a street away from where the crash happened, said they saw a wheel roll down the road in the early hours and rang for an ambulance.

The cordon was in place and the road closed all morning and into the afternoon.

Cars travelling along New Road from Guiseley and Rawdon, and those driving down Kirk Lane and Dibb Lane, had to turn around at the cordon.

West Yorkshire Police were contacted for comment but did not provide any details.
