A farm owner in Darton is calling for a 'fatal road' outside his home to be made safer because of the number of accidents there's been over the years.
Robert Thompson, 56, has lived on Huddersfield Road for more than two decades.
He said there's been about 25 accidents, several of them serious, on the road in the last year alone, which runs between Darton and the M1 junction at Haigh.
He believes the reason for the high accident rate is because the road's layout makes it easier for cars to travel fast.
His call for action comes two weeks after a 24-year-old man had to be transported to hospital by air ambulance with broken legs and a fractured pelvis after his car hit a stone wall and gate post outside Robert's home.
The man is believed to have heading towards Darton and taken a left hand bend on the crest of the hill on the road when the car left the road.
Robert said accidents frequently occur on that part of the road, particularly since it was altered about ten or 15 years ago.
