A speeding car has crashed through a garden fence and into the living room of a home in Wesham, near Kirkham.


Officers arrested two men after the Seat Leon crashed into the home off Blackpool Road/Preston New Road at around 12pm on Thursday afternoon (March 7).

The driver lost control on a stretch of road near Wareing Buildings, before the car mounted the pavement, ploughed into a garden fence and smashed its way into the home.

Police said wet roads and excess speeds might have led to the driver losing control of the vehicle.

The driver and a passenger escaped the mangled car wreck uninjured, but were later arrested after a police pursuit.

The occupants of the home near Kirkham were uninjured, but the collision has caused thousands of pounds in damage.
