A heavy goods vehicle rolled after crashing into a bridge in Wakefield yesterday.

The driver of the lorry miraculously escaped uninjured after the vehicle struck the underside of a bridge in Doncaster Road and overturned at around 5.15pm.

Officers from West Yorkshire Police rushed to the scene, where the lorry’s load had spilled across the road.

Diversions were put in place and the road was closed before a recovery vehicle arrived on scene later in the evening.
