South Yorkshire Police’s Serious Collisions Unit are appealing for witnesses to a road traffic collision in Sheffield city centre yesterday (Thursday 9 December) in which a man sadly died.

At about 9pm, a black Toyota MR2 was travelling along Hanover Way towards the Moore Street roundabout when it left the road before coming to rest in the subway at the junction of Headford Street.

Sadly the driver, a man, aged in his 30s, from Sheffield, was pronounced dead at the scene. His family have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers at this time.

A 30-year-old man from Sheffield has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving who was driving in another vehicle but had left the scene. Enquiries are ongoing and he remains in police custody at this time.

Officers are now appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident or who may have dash cam footage which  may have caught the moments before or after the Toyota left the road to come forward.

Anyone with information which could assist with our enquiries is asked to call 101, quoting incident number 853 of 9 December.

Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
