A teenaged driver in the UK was arrested after he crashed into a house and drove off with the front door. According to West Yorkshire Police, the 18-year-old collided with another car before crashing into the front porch of a house in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire on Friday night.
Despite the front door of the house getting wedged into his Audi’s windshield, the unnamed teen managed to flee the scene – taking the door with him.
“Driver collided with a vehicle, then the front porch of a house – before then continuing to drive for several metres with front door attached to car,” West Yorkshire Police said while releasing a picture of the wrecked Audi with the white front door lodged in its windshield and roof.
