South Yorkshire Police are appealing for witnesses after a man died in an accident where his car “left the road” in the city centre last night.

The crash happened on Hanover Way, when a black Toyota MR2 came off the carriageway and careered into the underpass at the junction of Headford Street.

A SYP spokesperson said: “Sadly the driver, a man, aged in his 30s, from Sheffield, was pronounced dead at the scene. His family have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers at this time.

“A 30-year-old man from Sheffield has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving who was driving in another vehicle but had left the scene. Enquiries are ongoing and he remains in police custody.”

The Serious Collision Unit are appealing for anyone who saw the accident or has any dash cam footage of the moments before the car came off the road, to come forward.

Kaltum Rivers, Green Party councillor for Broomhill and Sharrow Vale said: “We need more preventative measures, such as a speed camera and a barrier, this is the second time this has happened”.

She added: “It’s very upsetting for the local residents and I’m sure it’s heart-breaking for the family”.

Any witnesses are urged to contact the police on 101, quoting incident number 953 of the 9th December.

Information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
