Leeds: Car-smash man fights for his life

A man is fighting for life in hospital after a crash involving a stolen car that failed to stop for police.

Officers were on patrol in a marked police car in Randolph Street, Bramley on Thursday just after 6.30pm when they saw a silver Vauxhall Astra VXR travelling at speed.

They activated their blue lights but the car drove off and was involved in a collision with a parked Honda Civic in Fairfield Avenue.

The 20-year-old passenger is in a critical condition in Leeds General


Three other men also injured have been arrested on suspicion of theft of the vehicle.

Officers are keen for any witnesses or anyone who saw the silver Astra being driven in the area to contact PC 5344 Julian Ingham at the Roads Policing Unit at Horsforth on 0113 239 5031 or via 0845 6060606
