Woodhead Pass crash: Driver 'lucky' to escape skewered car
A motorist who crashed through a fence after skidding off a wet and icy road was "very lucky to walk away", say police.
Images posted online by South Yorkshire Police show a wooden fence post embedded in the windscreen of the BMW.
The incident happened on the A628 Woodhead Pass at about 13:20 GMT.
The force said: "This was a classic case of ambition outweighing ability and the driver was very lucky to walk away with minor injuries."
It added: "South Yorkshire's roads are extremely wet today with standing water in many places, including on the motorway.
"Please slow down - it really isn't worth risking your life."
Motorists have also been warned to be prepared for wintry conditions with snow falling on the Snake Pass.
