A man is currently in hospital with life-threatening injuries following a collision on a major Sheffield road yesterday evening.
Emergency services arrived at the incident on St Mary’s Gate at around 3.05pm after a blue Suzuki Jimny collided with a pedestrian on the pelican crossing at the London Road junction.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance service also attended and the pedestrian, who has so far only been confirmed as a 24 year-old male, was taken to hospital.
A witness said: “We drove past, there were 3 ambulances and police cars. They were putting someone on a stretcher.
“Looked very serious.”
South Yorkshire Police confirmed: “The pedestrian, a 24-year-old man, was taken to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
“We are appealing for anyone who saw the collision to contact us. In particular, we would like to hear from anyone who may have been driving in the area at the time and has dashcam footage.”
St Mary’s Gate and London Road were closed following the collision, with buses diverted away from the scene.
Stagecoach South Yorkshire had to reroute the Sheffield to Chesterfield 43 and 44 bus services, while First buses also had to divert a number of services.
All services are now running as usual.
