Appeal after motorway collision

POLICE are appealing for information about a motorway crash in which a car was flipped upside-down, blocking the carriageway.

The silver Vauxhall Corsa was travelling northbound on the M1, near junction 31, when it collided with blue Volkswagen LT panel van and overturned.

The van driver then left the scene of the crash, which happened at around 2.20pm on Thursday, October 25.

The 29-year-old car driver was taken to Rotherham Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and discharged.

The van driver — a man from the Rotherham area — was arrested and is now on police bail.

Sgt Steve Askham said: “Incredibly there were no serious injuries from this collision.

“South Yorkshire Police are keen to speak to anybody who was on the M1 at the time, in the area approaching junction 31, who may have seen all or part of the incident.”

Anyone who saw the crash or has helpful information is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on non-emergency number 101, quoting incident number 591 of October 25, 2012.
