A MAN had to be cut from his car after crashing on the ring road.

A silver Honda Civic and black Chevrolet collided at the junction of Castle Gate and Bradford Road in the town centre at about 3pm yesterday.

The crash happened as the Honda Civic headed towards Lower Fitzwilliam Street and the Chevrolet was turning right at the junction in to Bradford Road.

Following the collision, a third car was believed to have crashed in to the back of the Chevrolet but was not damaged.

The driver of the Civic, a man believed to be in his early 20s, was cut from the car by fire crews from both Huddersfield and Elland and stretchered to a nearby ambulance.

The man’s older brother had been travelling in the passenger seat and suffered cuts and bruises.

The roof was removed from the Civic and the front of the Chevrolet was severely damaged.

Emergency services cleared the accident, which was between Perry’s Jaguar and Home Town Cantonese restaurant, within 40 minutes. There was little disruption to traffic.

Police say there was “aggressive” behaviour between the two parties following the accident.

Three fire engines, two police cars and three ambulances were at the scene.
