Car runs into house after crash involving 3 vehicles
A 22-year-old man was arrested following a three-vehicle crash in Devon which resulted in one car hitting a nearby house.
Emergency services were called to Ramshill Road in Paignton after the collision between a Jaguar S-Type and a Vauxhall Corsa.
Devon and Cornwall Police said the Jaguar then hit a Renault van, which was parked on the road, before careering into the front garden of a house, only stopping when it struck the wall.
The driver, a 22-year-old local man, allegedly started to run away and had to be restrained by a witness until police officers arrived to arrest him.
