A man died after two cars were involved in a head-on smash at South Kirkby near Pontefract.
The 26-year-old man was driving a Peugeot 206 which collided with a Kian Carens on Hemsworth Road just after 4.30pm on Wednesday.
He was treated by an off-duty nurse and doctor, but was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on Hemsworth Road.
The driver of the Kia, who suffered serious injuries but which are not believed to be life-threatening, was cut free from his vehicle by firefighters from South Elmsall and Hemsworth fire stations.
He was taken to Pinderfields Hospital at Wakefield for treatment for neck, scalp and spinal injuries.
A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said the Peugeot was travelling along Hemsworth Road towards Hemsworth and the Kia was heading in the opposite direction when the collision happened.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance was called to the scene of the crash tragedy.
Police closed Hemsworth Road for several hours while accident investigators examined the scene of the incident. The road was re-opened after wreckage was cleared.
Police have not named the man who died in the incident, but have confirmed he was from the South Yorkshire area.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “Police are appealing for any witnesses to the incident to contact the Major Collision Enquiry Team on 101.”
And police are still investigating how a pick-up truck ended up on its roof when it collided with a garden wall on Wednesday.
The accident happened just after 5pm on Sharp Lane, at the junction with Leeds Road at Robin Hood, near Rothwell. The silver Toyota Hilux hit a wall and flipped over. Police said one person from the vehicle suffered arm injuries.
