A 20-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested following a crash on Saturday evening in Weston.
Police officers, firefighters and paramedics were called at about 7pm after his Ford Mondeo crashed into a family home in Alfred Street.
The driver, who has not been named, was taken to Weston General Hospital by ambulance for treatment after suffering minor injuries. The family inside were unharmed by the incident.
A spokesman for Avon and Somerset Constabulary said the driver has been bailed pending further investigation.
She said: “We arrested a man on Saturday after the man failed to stop. He is 20-years-old and was arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, failing to provide a specimen and driving without insurance.”
Bemused passers-by stopped to take photos of the stricken Ford as it lay on the pavement waiting to be towed away.
The police spokesman played down claims that officers were involved in a high-speed chase, contrary to eyewitness reports.
