The driver of a car who was injured when he crashed into a house in Bradford after fleeing police has died.

The 22-year-old was driving a Toyota Auris which collided with a house on Smithy Fold and a garden wall in Queensbury at about 11.55pm on Friday night after failing to stop for a marked police vehicle earlier that night.

He suffered head injuries and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary but died last night.

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision, which occurred on Highgate Road at its junction with Union House Lane.

Any witnesses who saw the Toyota prior to or during the incident, should contact the non-emergency number 101.
