Police had to deal with two car smashes on the same notorious Holme Valley road over the weekend during wet and foggy weather.

Meltham Road was the scene of two separate accidents on Saturday, closing it for several hours.

The first incident occurred at about noon close to Huddersfield RUFC’s Lockwood Park rugby ground, with as many as four cars thought to have been involved.

Despite the severe damage to the cars, West Yorkshire Police said there were no serious injuries.

One victim, Louise Sargent, told the Examiner on social media she had been in the car that was hit head-on.

She said: “Been to hospital, nothing broken, just very sore and bruised. Car is a total write-off.”

A witness said on Facebook that one of the vehicles had left the road and hit another, crushing it into a wall.

Police attended a second crash on Meltham Road just after 10pm on Saturday.

An eye-witness told The Examiner he was first on the scene after coming across two cars, including one on its side.

The man, who did not want to be named, said he had helped a girl out of the overturned vehicle and called the emergency services.

He also said one of the victims was a teenage boy.

The incidents have renewed calls from some locals for speed cameras.

The road linking Meltham with Huddersfield is considered one of the most dangerous in town, especially the notorious “Big Valley Bend” at Armitage Bridge.

Writing on Facebook, Alistair Swan said: “I’ve lived on this road for nine years and it’s seen loads of nasty accidents and, sadly, deaths.

“I’ve had the local council and traffic cops look at it but nothing much has been done. How many more?”

Kelly Evans Chadwick wrote: “There are signs saying speed cameras but there are no actual cameras. Maybe cameras would help slow people down.”
