Two dead in Leeds crash

Two men have been killed in a road traffic collision in Leeds.

At 6.45am yesterday (26 June) police were called to reports of a collision on the A650 Bradford Road, in East Ardsley, near to the junction with Woodhouse Lane.

A black Volkswagen Golf had been involved in a collision with a black Ford Focus and a silver Mercedes C220.

The Golf was travelling away from the M1 towards Leeds at the time of the collision.

Two men, aged 26 and 34, who were rear seat passengers in the Golf, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Three other men from the Golf were taken to hospital. Two of the men, aged 25 and 33, are currently described as critical. A 17-year-old male is also receiving medical treatment.

The driver of the Mercedes, a 59-year-old man, was treated for a fractured wrist.

Detective Sergeant Alison Webb, of West Yorkshire Police Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “This collision has very sadly resulted in the deaths of two men, and the other occupants of the Golf are currently undergoing emergency treatment in hospital.

“We are doing everything we can to support the families of those involved at what is clearly a very difficult time for them.

“We are carrying out a comprehensive investigation to establish the full circumstances of this incident and would like to hear from anyone who witnessed either the collision itself or the movements of the vehicles involved in the time leading up to it.

“We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has any relevant dashcam footage which could assist the investigation.”
