A 19 YEAR-OLD man has been arrested after a 25-year-old man sustained life-threatening injuries in a collision on May 6.

At around 11.30pm officers engaged in a pursuit with what is believed to have been a black Audi A3 or S3 that failed to stop on Park Road, in the direction of Cemetery Road, Barnsley.

As the black Audi turned onto Wood Street officers lost sight of the vehicle and the pursuit was abandoned.

Whilst conducting a search of the area officers found a 25-year-old man near to the brow of the hill on Wood Street, thought to have been in collision with Audi.

The 25-year-old man remains in hospital in a stable condition.

The 19-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop after a collision and attempting to pervert the course of justice.

He has been released pending further investigation.
