Have your say

A MAN is fighting for his life in hospital today after a car crash in Leeds.

The 38-year-old was injured in the smash in Moortown last night, when his Mercedes vehicle collided with an Audi at the junction of Stonegate Road and Castle View.

PC Russ Windross, from West Yorkshire Police’s Major Collision Investigation Unit, said: “The incident occurred around 8.55pm as the Mercedes was being driven along Stonegate Road from the direction of King Lane when it collided with an Audi A4 estate which came from Castle View.

“The 38-year-old driver of the Mercedes was taken to Leeds General Infirmary with back and abdominal injuries.

“He remains in a critical condition this morning.”

He added: “A 32-year-old male driver from the Audi has also received hospital treatment but his injuries are not considered to be life threatening.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to contact PC Windross via 101, quoting reference 1529 of September 2.
