A FOUR-CAR collision forced a busy road to close during rush hour on Monday.

Police were called to the pile-up at the roundabout at Cortonwood, on the Dearne Valley Parkway at around 5.45pm.

Four cars - a Volkswagen, two Vauxhalls and an Audi - were involved in the crash and the road was closed while the vehicles were recovered.

The road was re-opened at around 7.20pm.

A woman inside one of the cars complained of possible injury to her legs, but no other injuries were reported.
