“The two vehicles, a Kia Cee’d and a Mercedes 350, collided, leaving the Kia likely to be written off with extensive front end damage,” said police.

“As temperatures in the region continue to fluctuate from mild to freezing, roads remain wet and greasy, and driving conditions are less than ideal,” added the police spokesman.
Sergeant Phil Priestley said: “We remind everyone that - even in bad conditions - it remains your responsibility to show due care and adjust your driving to suit the weather and the state of the roads.
“Please slow down when driving on wet or icy roads, always wear your seatbelt, and resist the temptation of answering or using a mobile phone.”
