A WOMAN was hurt in one of a series of crashes as ice returned to Huddersfield roads.
She was injured when her car crashed on the A635 Greenfield Road above Holmfirth.
The accident yesterday morning was one of a number on the moorland roads.
There were also accidents on the A640 at Scammonden, where a car crashed on to the grass verge.
The Greenfield Road accident happened just before 8am and the woman was taken to hospital with knee and chest injuries following a collision between two cars.
The black Suzuki hatchback she was driving careered off the road.
Fire crews from Meltham, Huddersfield and Holmfirth attended the scene. They helped the woman, believed to be in her 30s, get out of the car before she was taken to hospital by ambulance.
The driver of the second car was shaken up.
Police closed the road until 9.30am. Officers reported ice on the road, but did not state if this was a contributory factor.
Kirklees Council had gritted the road before the crash. But concerns were expressed yesterday about gritting generally on the Greenfield Road on the Yorkshire side of the border.
Mr Ronald Noble, 84, of Thongsbridge, is contacting the Highways Agency to lobby for more co-operation between local councils on both sides of the border over gritting the road when temperatures fall.
He said his son Philip uses the road every day to travel to work in Greenfield.
Mr Noble said: “It is no longer a minor road. It is a main route into Lancashire and used an awful lot. At 5pm in Holmfirth, traffic is queuing on the road to get into the village.”
