Crash: Bedford Man Injured
A man from Bedford and another from Worcestershire are fighting for their lives after a big crash on the A1M in South Yorkshire that claimed the life of a lorry driver.
The crash happened near Doncaster at 6.10am on Sunday 17 February 2013 when a silver Vauxhall Astra collided with a heavy goods vehicle.
The car then collided with the central barrier and came to rest across the inside lane, while the HGV pulled on to the hard shoulder.
A different truck stopped on the hard shoulder to try and help, but then a third lorry crashed into the back of that.
The driver of the third HGV, a 47-year-old man from Leeds, was killed and two passengers from the same vehicle sustained multiple, life-threatening injuries.
One of the men, a 58-year-old from Redditch, is being treated at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield. The other, a 35-year-old man from Bedford, is being treated at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.
A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "The driver of the Vauxhall Astra, a 26-year-old man from Doncaster, has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving.''
The northbound carriageway of the A1M was closed at J36-37 for over eight hours as a result of the incidents.
A lorry driver who crashed into a queue of stationary traffic, killing an elderly couple and seriously injuring a further two people, has been jailed.
