A MAN hurt in a double death crash is a soccer player.
Sheffield Wednesday full back John Hills was hurt when his Mercedes was reportedly hit by another car which failed to stop at a junction near Penistone.
The 27-year-old was left with a fractured rib and is expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks.
He was heading towards his home in a Huddersfield village when the tragedy happened at the junction of Bents Road and Lee Lane at Hazlehead, close to Penistone, at 8.15 on Monday.
The men who died at the scene were in a silver Peugeot 505.
They were 43-year-old Raymond Elvin from Penistone and his 27-year-old nephew, Sean Elvin, of Hoyland.
A 27-year-old man who was in the back seat escaped with minor leg injuries.
Police believe the Peugeot failed to stop at the junction.
John Hills was taken to Barnsley District General Hospital and allowed home after treatment.
A Sheffield Wednesday spokesman said: "John has fractured a rib. He was needing a knee operation before this so he will have that while he is off and will be out for between four and six weeks."
An inquest into the two deaths is due to be opened in Barnsley tomorrow.
First team left back Hills joined the Owls in June on a free transfer from Gillingham.
He started his career in Blackpool playing for his hometown club and has had spells at Everton and Swansea City.
