Police are appealing for information and dashcam footage after a 69-year-old man died in a road traffic collision in Barnsley last night.

Police were called at around 9.10pm to reports that a man had been involved in a collision on Park Road, Worsbrough Bridge.

Officers attended and it is believed that two vehicles had stopped to assist a man who had fallen in the road. A short time later, a grey Hyundai i10 and silver BMW 118D collided with the man who was laid in the road at the time.

The drivers of all of the vehicles remained at the scene following the collision and are assisting officers with their enquiries.

The man was treated by the ambulance service but sadly died at the scene.

Police are asking for any witnesses to the collision or any motorists in the area around the time of the incident with dashcam footage to come forward. Officers are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the pedestrian shortly before the collision, or who witnessed the collision itself.
