Man arrested after a car was driven the wrong way on the M180.
A silver Ford Focus was involved in a pursuit with Humberside police after the stolen car was driven the wrong way down the M180. The driver of the Ford Focus rammed a police car as it made an attempt to stop him and then crashed into a silver BMW.
The car had been stolen in Rotherham and was abandoned as it came off the motorway at Barnetby Top. Police in South Yorkshire have now arrested a man in connection with the theft of a vehicle and are investigating to see if he is connected to the incident on the M180.
Humberside Police thanked all those drivers who were on the M180 on Wednesday afternoon who dealt with the situation in the best way they could. With thanks to their vigilance, we avoided what could have been an extremely more serious situation.
