Written by on 01/12/2020

A careless driver travelled over 25 miles in a smashed up car after crashing near Sheffield.

Officers from South Yorkshire Police pulled over a Vauxhall Zafira after it was spotted with a smashed up front and completely destroyed bonnet.

The driver said he had been involved in a crash on November 28 at Snake Pass and had driven over 25 miles to Attercliffe Common where he was eventually pulled over by officers.

The car was so dangerous that it should not have been on the road and the driver was reported.

In a post on the SYP Operational Support page on November 28 said: “The driver of this Vauxhall Zafira was stopped by our Tutor Unit Constables earlier this morning on Attercliffe Common in Sheffield.

“Not sure why they would feel the need to stop the vehicle and speak with the driver?

“The driver explained that he had been involved in a collision earlier in the morning, on the Snake Pass, some distance away from Attercliffe Common.

“He didn’t feel that the dangerous condition of the vehicle and that it had no appropriate lighting for the hours of darkness, would be an issue in him continuing his journey to Sheffield.

“The vehicle was prohibited by Traffic Officers from being used on a road due to its extreme dangerous condition.

“The driver has been reported for using a vehicle on a road in a dangerous condition by the local Constables.”
