Fire crews attended a two-vehicle crash this morning (Monday).

Firefighters from Wakefield were called to Dewsbury Road, at junction 40 of the M1 motorway, at around 10.50am.

Two cars were involved in the crash where two women had sustained suspected neck injuries.

Fire crews assisted the ambulance service at the scene, but did not need to cut any passengers from the cars.

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said rainy conditions may have played a part in the collision.

The women were taken to Pinderfields Hospital and the road was closed for around 25 minutes.

Fire crews left at around 11.25am.
