TWO men are still fighting for their lives in hospital after a smash in Crofton.

A 20-year-old and a 29-year-old are in a critical condition after they were injured during the incident on Doncaster Road on Friday.

They were travelling in a blue Volkswagen Golf that hit an Arriva bus close to the Redbeck railway bridge at 2.15pm.

The driver of the car, a 30-year-old man, is also in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The bus driver, a 64-year-old woman, also remains in a serious but stable condition.

Nigel Featham, managing director for Arriva Yorkshire, said: “Following the incident on Doncaster Road on Friday we can confirm that our driver is still in hospital.

“Our thoughts are with her and with those other passengers and people involved in this extremely serious incident.”

In total 11 bus passengers had to be taken to hospital including two men, aged 80 and 82, who suffered serious injuries.

Residents said the crash was one of the worst they had ever seen on Doncaster Road.

Yorkshire Air Ambulance was scrambled to take the injured people to hospital.

Four fire crews also attended to help rescue passengers from the bus and free the men from the car.

Police closed the road until after 9pm on Friday night to carry out a detailed examination of the scene.

Anyone with any information should call police on 101.
