THREE people have been bailed in connection with a fatal collision in Cudworth last month which killed a dad and his son.

Dean Jones, 40, and 16-year-old Lewis Daines died following a fail-to-stop collision in Cudworth on January 20.

Shortly after 9pm, emergency services were called to Royston Road, at the bridge over Cudworth Parkway, following reports of a collision.

Mr Jones and Mr Daines were cycling along Royston Road when a vehicle was in collision with them both.

The vehicle failed to stop and left the scene.

Emergency services attended, but both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

Two people were arrested on Tuesday in connection to the incident.

A police spokesperson said: “Two women from Barnsley, aged 30 and 36, were arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender but have been released under investigation.”

On Tuesday evening, a 35-year-old man handed himself into a police station and was arrested on suspicion of murder, but has since been bailed.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Knowles, investigating, said: “We’re continuing to investigate this collision which has understandably left a family devastated and we’re doing all we can to get them the answers they need.

“We’ve issued a number of appeals since the collision occurred and I’d like to thank those members of the public that came forward with information.

“These arrests are a huge step in our efforts of piecing together exactly what happened and I would still ask anyone with information to come forward.

“Though we’ve arrested a man on suspicion of murder, we’re keeping an open mind and are continuing to follow up a number of lines of enquiry.
