A pedestrian was killed and a driver died in two different Huddersfield road traffic accidents on the same evening.
The first accident occurred on Saturday evening when a 36 year old man was knocked down as he walked on a road in the Flockton area of the town. He was taken to hospital but he died from his injuries.
Around eight hours later a man in his twenties was in his Vauxhall Corsa when it rolled and crashed into a lamp-post in Aspley, no other vehicles are thought to be involved in the accident.
The young man has not yet been identified and police have confirmed a 20 year old woman has not been arrested but investigations into the causes of the accident are continuing.
As local fire fighters were returning to the station they came across a wreckage and they stopped to help the victims and administer first aid. The man was taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary but was confirmed dead after his arrival.
Another passenger of the car was also taken to hospital suffering from minor injuries. Police are now appealing for witnesses for both of the incidents.
I was passed around a bit at first but eventually ended up with Joanne Waring, who was awesome.
