Es­cape for M62 crash cou­ple

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

A COU­PLE had a lucky es­cape when their car crashed off the M62 and came within a few feet of ca­reer­ing down a bank­ing to­wards the El­land by­pass.

Po­lice, am­bu­lance and fire crews at­tended the crash which hap­pened on the mo­tor­way be­tween junc­tions 24 and 25 on the east­bound car­riage­way on Sat­ur­day at around 7.15pm.

A spokesman for West York­shire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice said the car, an Audi A4, went through the bar­rier at the side of the hard shoul­der but stopped short of go­ing through a rail­ing and over the edge of the bank­ing.

The spokesman said a man in the car man­aged to get him­self out of the car.

A woman suf­fered slight in­juries and was taken to an am­bu­lance on a stretcher. The cou­ple in the car were thought to be in their 20s. The cause of the crash has not been dis­closed.
