Emergency services were called to Main Road in Wharncliffe Side at 11.52am yesterday (July 28) following reports that a tree had fallen onto a moving car.
A video shared to local Facebook group Stocksbridge Community Forum shows how the silver car had crumpled against the toppled tree’s trunk on the northbound side of the road.
A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said the female driver reportedly did not suffer serious injuries.
A witness who saw the aftermath of the crash – who asked not to be named – said: “From what I heard it fell right smack bang on top of her.
“She was okay from what I saw. It’s not the first time trees have come down on that road.”
The road was closed while debris cleared away.
