Personal injury after hitting lamp post

A 25-year-old driver and his 23-year-old passenger both suffered personal injury after the driver lost control of his silver Nissan Micra car and crashed it into a lamp post.

The incident, which occurred in Barnsley, does not seem to have involved another motorist. As a result of this, the police are asking any witnesses to come forward, so that inquiries can be made about the "manner the vehicle was being driven", before it hit the post. Once the circumstances of the car accident are known, police may be able to charge the driver if he has committed a driving offence.

The driver is still being treated in hospital for two broken legs, but his passenger escaped with a slight whiplash injury and, after being checked over by medical staff for further injuries, was released from hospital on the same day as he was admitted.

If the 25-year-old driver is found to have been driving recklessly, then the passenger could decide to make a whiplash injury claim. If it is later revealed that another vehicle was involved, then both individuals could decide to take legal action against the driver of that other vehicle.
