TWO women have been arrested in connection with a fatal collision in Cudworth earlier this month which killed a dad and his son.

Dean Jones, 40 and 16-year-old Lewis Daines died following a fail-to-stop collision in Cudworth on January 20.

Shortly after 9pm, emergency services were called to Royston Road, on the bridge over Cudworth Parkway, following reports of a collision.

Mr Jones and Mr Daines, were cycling along Royston Road when a vehicle was in collision with them both. The vehicle failed to stop and left the scene.

Emergency services attended, but both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

A police spokesperson said: “Two women from Barnsley, aged 30 and 36, have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

“They remain in custody at this time.

“Paul Yates, also known as ‘Bane’ or ‘PIP’, is still wanted in connection with the collision and officers are continuing to appeal for anyone with information about the 35 year old’s whereabouts to get in touch.

“Anyone who may have spoken to Yates recently, or knows where he may be staying, is asked to get in touch.

“Anyone who may see him should not approach him but instead call 999.

“Officers are also continuing to urge witnesses to the collision, or anyone who has any dash-cam footage, to get in touch by contacting police using live chat, our online portal, or by calling 101 quoting incident number 1089 of January 20 2023.”
