A TEENAGE girl was seriously injured when a driver fleeing from police crashed into the car she was travelling in.

Officers were called to Owl Lane in Dewsbury at 8.11pm on Sunday following reports that a Renault Megane car had smashed into two other vehicles.

The driver of the Megane, a 31-year-old Dewsbury man, had failed to stop for police just a few minutes before. He was found nearby and arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, possession of Class A and Class B drugs and burglary.

A man and woman and two girls aged 13 and 17 from one of the other two cars were taken to hospital. The 13-year-old is still in hospital in a stable condition, while the others were treated for minor injuries. The driver has been released under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police via 101.
