Driver flees after crash injures two passengers

A DRIVER fled after crashing their car into a traffic island and injuring two passengers, police said.

The two passengers, men aged 26 and 21, were left with serious injuries in the collision in Broom.

Police are trying to trace the driver of the silver Toyota Yaris involved in the incident at 2am on Saturday (25) on Wickersley Road, which happened as the car was travelling from the Stag roundabout towards Rotherham town centre.

The driver lost control at the junction with Ledsham Road and collided with a pedestrian crossing before hitting a garden wall, a police spokeswoman said.

Police are appealing for information and are urging witnesses to come forward.
