A busy West Leeds road was closed in one direction for over an hour last night following a crash which saw one driver run away.

Police were called to the collision, near the Stanningley Road KFC, which left a people carrier overturned after being struck by a Mercedes driven by a man who then fled the scene.

In a statement, West Yorkshire Police said:

“At 6.45pm yesterday, police received a report of a road traffic collision in Stanningley Road near to the junction with Moorfield Road.

“A silver Volkswagen Sharan and a blue Mercedes C220 were involved.

“The Sharan overturned in the collision and two people from that vehicle were treated by paramedics. Their injuries were not considered life threatening.

“The driver of the Mercedes ran off from the scene and enquiries are ongoing to identify and trace him.”

The road reopened shortly after 8pm but caused significant traffic disruption in the area.
