A MAN is in a critical condition after a three car smash close to Newmillerdam.

A champagne coloured Vauxhall Insignia and a white Vauxhall Astra were travelling along Barnsley Road towards Barnsley when they collided on Friday night at about 9.20pm.

Both cars then collided with a silver Nissan Micra travelling in the opposite direction.

The 35-year-old driver of the Micra, who is from the Royston area of Barnsley, was taken to Pinderfields Hospital suffering with serious injuries and remains in a critical condition.

A man in his twenties was arrested but has since been released on bail pending further enquiries.
