FOUR people were taken to hospital, three with serious injuries, after a two-vehicle crash on the A684 in the Yorkshire Dales.

The smash between a Mini and a VW Passat happened at about 1.40pm yesterday at Swinithwaite and fire crews from Hawes and Leyburn were quickly at the scene.


The female driver of the Mini had to be cut free from the wreckage and was flown to the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough along with one other of the injured.

Two others were taken to the hospital by road ambulance.

The road remained closed for several hours in the wake of the smash as officers examined the scene and arranged for the recovery of the damaged vehicles.
