Drivers faced tailbacks and delays after the A58 was closed for two hours following a crash.
The incident happened at around 12.15pm on Sunday Leeds Road in Lower Brear in between Stump Cross and Hipperholme.
One of the cars was left on the wrong side of the road which meant the road had to be closed.
Paramedics treated both drivers for minor injuries while police cleared the wreckage and the road was reopened at 2.15pm.
Traffic officers are investigating the incident.
