A lamp post had to be taken down for safety reasons after a car crash destroyed part of a dry stone wall outside a village primary school.
Witnesses say a minibus, travelling in the direction of Oxspring along Halifax Road, Thurgoland, hit a parked car, forcing it through the wall.
Max Barton, 17, who lives close to the site, near Thurgoland Primary School, said the car owner was 'devastated' by the damage.
"It was probably half an hour or so after 'going home time'," he said. "I don't think anybody was hurt."
Barnsley Council workers attended the scene later in the evening, Thursday September 5, removed the top part of the lamp post and fenced the area off.
A council spokesman said: "The lighting column will be replaced in the next few weeks."
