A Lamborghini crashed in flames in Wakefield Road, Bradford, last night.

Emergency services attended the scene at around 10.30pm, along with two engines from Bradford fire station, police and ambulance crews.

A witness said the Lamborghini was being driven by someone who was part of a wedding party in the city.

West Yorkshire Police have put out an appeal for witnesses following the incident.

A spokesman said: "Police are appealing for witnesses after a serious road traffic collision last night (February 15) in Wakefield Road, Bradford. 

"Roads Policing Officers were conducting static speed enforcement checks on the A650 Wakefield Road which is a 40mph limit and it is known locally as a hot spot for speeding.

"At 10.30pm officers clocked a green Lamborghini hire car driving at very high speeds and far in excess of the 40mph speed limit.

"The Officers witnessed the green Lamborghini immediately collide with a parked up VW Golf with a motorist sitting inside, which in turn hit an unoccupied parked Kia on Wakefield Road at the junction of Elinthorpe Street.

"Three people were injured.

"The driver of the Lamborghini, a 25-year-old man, suffered head injuries and remains in hospital and the passenger a 25 year old woman suffered minor injuries and has since been discharged from hospital.

"The male driver of the VW Golf suffered minor injuries.

"Due to the nature of the incident it has been referred to the Independent Office for Police Conduct, who attended the scene last night.

"Police were not in pursuit of the Lamborghini. Roads Policing Officers ran on foot from their stationary vehicle to the scene of the collision to give first aid.

"Police are appealing for anyone who saw the green Lamborghini prior to the collision or the collision itself or anyone who may have any dash cam footage to contact police on 101 quoting log 1901 of 15 February or use the live chat facility at www.westyorkshire.police.uk/contactus."

A spokesman for Yorkshire Ambulance Service said they sent three ambulances, a hazardous area response team (HART) a rapid response team and three doctors to the scene.

Three patients were transported to Leeds General Infirmary but their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

A passerby took video footage of the incident which shows the car on fire as well as a large stretch of road caused by leaking petrol.
