Firefighters and paramedics were also called to the scene, and a fire service spokesman confirmed they were called to free a woman from the car.

One eyewitness said they believed the collision appeared to involve a lorry and a Vauxhall car.

They said: “It has happened at one of the busiest junctions in Rossington. It used to be manned by a school crossing patrol.

“There are both fire engines and police cars across the road, and it looks as if it may have been a head on collision. The fire brigade have had their cutting equipment out.”

A woman later posted on social media that she had been injured in the crash but not seriously.
