Four people had an “unbelievable” escape from death when wooden posts smashed through the window of a car after it hit a fence in Leeds.

Pictures shared by police on Twitter show a number of the posts skewering the inside of the car.

Police described the car’s occupants as “four of the luckiest people our officers have ever seen following an RTC”.

A 22-year-old man who was driving the car suffered serious head injuries.

Police said the driver remained in hospital but that his injuries were “not thought to be life-threatening”.

The passengers, a 20-year-old man and two women aged 19 and 20, were treated for minor injuries.

The incident happened just after 12:00am on Monday at a roundabout on the A61 in the Stourton area of the city.

West Yorkshire Police added in their tweet: “Unbelievable how this did not result in multiple fatalities. Thankfully luck was on everybody’s side this evening.”

No arrests have been made and the force is appealing for witnesses.
