A driver crashed into the front porch of a house and then continued driving with the front door lodged between his car windscreen and roof.

West Yorkshire Police were called to Ashworth Road, Dewsbury, at 7.43pm on Friday, where the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The silver Audi collided with another vehicle before it hit the house and then continued driving for several metres with the front door attached to the car.

The 18-year-old male driver suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital for treatment. His injuries are not thought to be serious.

Inquiries remain ongoing and anyone who saw what happened, who has not yet spoken to police, is asked to contact the Western Area Roads Policing Unit on 101 referencing police log 1555 of November 20.
