Four people are in hospital after a black ice crash.
The road section near New Hey Road, which has become slippery due to the bad weather conditions, is currently blocked and a fire crew, ambulance and police are present at the scene.
The accident happened despite attempts by Kirklees Council gritting team, who last night gritted the road.
The exact nature of the people’s injuries are not known but a police spokeswoman said that they suffered “minor” injuries and were “walking wounded”.
The force has called on the council to see if it can do more to prevent more crashes due to black ice in the area.
The spokeswoman said: “There are issues in the area due to the icy conditions.
“We have contacted the council to see if anything more can be done.”
Liberal Democrat councillor Nicola Turner, who lives near to the scene of the accident, has been campaigning to make changes to the grit for the last couple of years.
