Car crashes into front of Sheffield house

A car has crashed into the front room of a house in Meersbrook in Sheffield. Neighbours told Calendar that they were concerned the road hadn't been gritted.

We were very sorry to hear about the accident that took place at the bottom of Bishopscourt Road in Meersbrook this morning. This road has never been included on the gritting route and we would always encourage all drivers to travel on roads along the gritting route. The team had been out working hard since 6pm last night to ensure that all gritting routes (primary and secondary roads) were gritted and passable. We grit more than 60 per cent of Sheffield’s roads, which is more than any other local authority in the country. We would urge drivers to plan their route and drive to the conditions of the road at all times.
