West Yorkshire Police said: “Enquiries at the scene suggest he had been involved in an altercation with another male and ended up in the road before being hit by a black Ford Fiesta which was travelling with a white Seat Ibiza away from Pontefract town centre.

"Two males, aged 17 and 18, have been arrested on suspicion of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and are currently in custody.”

“For this reason, we are appealing not just for any witnesses to the collision, but also to the events leading up to it.

“It is important that we identify any other persons involved in the incident and understand the circumstances that have led to a man sustaining life-threatening injuries.”

Any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage is asked to contact Wakefield District CID via Live Chat online or by calling 101, quoting log 280 of 19 November.

Police issue mobile speed camera locations across West Yorkshire …

Across West Yorkshire[1] mobile speed cameras are put in place on multiple roads in a bid to reduce car accidents.

The cameras are set up by the West Yorkshire Police[2] Camera Enforcement Unit on behalf of the West Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnership. They are designed to try to keep speeds down on roads[3] to prevent accidents.

To do this, they are placed in known casualty zones, which are areas where the police believe accidents are likely to happen. They then shine a laser to determine the speeds of passing vehicles.

These cameras are spread out across West Yorkshire. Here are their locations at the time of publishing. The locations are subject to change without further notice.
