A driver who had to be rescued from a ditch when he collapsed after a car crash has been arrested and will appear in court.
Humberside Police, Yorkshire Ambulance Service and Humberside Fire and Rescue were all called in the early hours of Sunday, to reports of a car crashing into a garage forecourt.
The silver Vauxhall Astra was seen with a “smoking flat tyre with sparks flying” driving through the pumping area, before hitting one of the metal bollards protecting the garage shop.
It then reversed and hit a black Renault.
A man was then seen running across the forecourt and into a nearby field, where he collapsed.
An eyewitness at the scene in Glews Garage, Goole, said: “The car drove into the garage with a smoking flat front tyre with sparks flying and through the actual pumping area.”
Police officers dealt with the collapsed man, who had been covered in silver blankets before being loaded into an ambulance via a stretcher.
The police confirmed that they attended the scene.
