Crashed car gets removed


A car that was abandoned after a crash has finally been removed.

The vehicle had left the road and ended up on its roof at the top of Runs Bank, near Bellerby, a month ago on August 5.

It had come to rest upside down on Ministry of Defence land used for military training.

The vehicle had been vandalised and parts removed in recent days.

Police believed the red Seat Ibiza contained five passengers — as well as the driver — at the time of the collision, with only one occupant wearing a seatbelt.

The driver and passengers managed to crawl out of the vehicle before the emergency services arrived.

A 26-year-old man believed to have been the driver failed a roadside breath test.

He was taken to hospital with minor injuries and later arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

The motorist was taken into custody for questioning and later released pending further enquiries.

Several of the passengers also needed hospital treatment for minor injuries.
