Vehicle Crashes Outside Of Primary School

Friday September 20 2013




A VEHICLE destroyed a section of dry stone wall outside a village primary school.

A lamp post had to be taken down for safety reasons after the incident on September 5. Witnesses said a minibus, travelling in the direction of Oxspring along Halifax Road, Thurgoland, hit a parked car, forcing it through the wall.

Max Barton, 17, who lives close to the site, near Thurgoland Primary School, said the car owner was 'devastated' by the damage.

"It was probably half an hour or so after 'going home time'," he said. "I don't think anybody was hurt."

Workers from Barnsley Council attended the scene later in the evening and removed the top part of the lamp post and fenced the area off.

A council spokesman said: "The lighting column will be replaced in the next few weeks."
