Two men have been taken to hospital after a minibus and car collided in Halifax this morning.

The incident, in which a white minibus and a silver Ford Focus collided, happened on King Cross Road at around 5.20am.

Fire crews from Halifax had to cut off the roof of the Ford to release the driver, who is in his 50s, and the passenger, a male in his 20s.

They were both freed from the car on extraction boards to safeguard against cervical spine injuries. They have been taken to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Nobody in the minibus suffered any serious injury.

Two crews from Halifax attended the incident and left around 6.30am.

Early morning buses had to be diverted because the road was closed for several hours, but traffic has now returned to normal.
