Man Trapped Under Car In Barnsley

Police in Barnsley are appealing for witnesses and information after two men were hurt - one seriously - during an incident in the town centre at around 2.30am on Sunday, 25 September.

A 19-year-old Conisbrough man and a 20-year-old man from Rawmarsh were on Peel Street, near to the junction with Graham's Orchard, when it seems they were attacked by the occupants of a blue Audi A4 and a white Vauxhall Combo van.

The driver of the Audi is then believed to have tried to drive off, but collided with the 20-year-old, who became trapped under the vehicle.

Just before police arrived, a number of people out in the town centre lifted the car's passenger side, while others pulled the man out.

He is believed to have suffered fractures to his pelvis and ribs and serious head injuries and is detained in Barnsley District General Hospital.

The 19-year-old suffered facial injuries, but did not need hospital treatment.

Any witnesses or anyone with information about the incident should ring South Yorkshire Police on 0114 2202020 and quote incident number 182 of today, 25 September, 2011, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Two Sheffield men, both aged 22 years, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in connection with this incident and released on bail.
