Pensioner dies following Greasbrough crash

A PENSIONER has died after being involved in a crash which caused two cars to leave the road.

Philip Rodney Harper (72) was a passenger in a red Toyota Yaris when it was involved in a collision with a blue Toyota Starlet on Car Hill at the junction with Barbot Hill Road, Greasbrough.

The collision occurred at around 5.45pm on Friday, December 22, and caused both cars to leave the carriageway.

Mr Harper was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but died in hospital on Boxing Day, a South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said.

“A 71-year-old woman driving the Yaris suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital," she added.

“Two 22-year-old men in the Starlet suffered minor injuries.”

Officers are urging witnesses to contact 101, quoting incident number 827 of December 22.
