Barnsley motorway crash

A man is in hospital with life threatening injuries after a car crash in Barnsley.

It is understood a car driven by a man from Bradford was travelling southbound on the M1 when a lorry pulled in behind the car and pulled into the second lane to overtake it.

A second car, driven by a 21-year-old man from Darlington, is then believed to have lost control, overtaking the lorry and hitting the back of the other car. He is now being treated at the Northern General Hospital.
