Road traffic collision on B4425 near Barnsley hospitalises three women, two in critical condition at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford

A SERIOUS road traffic collision involving three cars has left three women hospitalised, with two said to be in a critical condition.

Two of the women sustained life threatening head injuries while the other is suffering from multiple trauma injuries.

Medics were forced to induce one woman into a coma before being taken to hospital.

All three women were taken by road ambulance to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, where they remain.

Another person who received minor injuries was taken to Swindon’s Great Western Hospital but has since been discharged.

Emergency services were called shortly after 5.30pm on Sunday evening to the incident, which happened on the B4425 near Barnsley.

A total of four ambulances were called to the scene along with a helicopter from Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

Two people had to be extricated from their vehicles by fire crews that were dispatched from Cirencester and Fairford.

A further two people were described as walking wounded and were treated for their injuries at the scene.

It is yet unclear what caused the massive crash but eyewitness reports suggest that one vehicle was turned on its side while another ended up backwards in a ditch.

This accident is the second to occur on the B4425 in a matter of weeks following the death of a motorcyclist earlier in the year.

“It is known for accidents,” said Howard Franks, chairman of the Barnsley Parish Meeting.

“The accidents have gone up noticeably in the last two or three years. I think people go at quite high speeds on that road.

“It does struggle to cope with the volume of traffic – it does get a lot of a heavy traffic,” he said.

Barnsley Park wall has had to be rebuilt several times in recent years due to out of control vehicles impacting into it.
