Two more drivers have fallen victim to a notorious stretch of country road near Huddersfield.
Early Sunday evening a Renault Clio ended up on its roof and on Monday morning a Honda Civic crashed through a fence and landed in a field.
The two smashes – in which no one was believed to be badly hurt – are the latest in a catalogue of crashes on the B6118 Bellstring Lane/Liley Lane between Kirkheaton and Grange Moor.
Residents have been keeping a toll of the accidents all winter and one of them, Simon Moyser, fires off an e-mail to Kirklees Council every time there’s another smash.
There were three crashes in three days in November and the accident count continues to rise.
The council has promised to investigate the sudden upsurge and Mirfield Tory councillor Martyn Bolt has alerted police and wants to organise a public meeting.
Mr Moyser took pictures of the crash at 5.30pm on Sunday and spoke to the driver. He described him as a “middle aged chap” who told him he was “driving sensibly” on his way home from a golf day.
Mr Moyser added: “He clipped the banking and flipped over. He was lucky there was nothing coming in the opposite direction.”
During rush hour on Monday morning police, fire crews and the ambulance service attended a smash in Liley Lane. The silver Honda left the road and spun down a muddy banking into a field. It is thought the driver was unhurt.
Recovery crews were called to the scene to get the vehicle out of the field.
Last weekend there were two crashes when a car hit a wall and another, a Fiat, was left with front end damage after what was believed to be a tyre blow out.
People have come up with various theories for the accidents including excessive speed, the camber of the road and mud from quarries and farmland.
Last week a council spokesman told the Examiner that investigations were underway to determine “what, if anything, can be done” to cut the number of accidents.
