A CAR came off the road and crashed into an electricity pole earlier this morning.

It happened at around 5.30am on the A629 between Keighley and Silsden. 

A West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the car went off the road, down some banking and crashed into an electricity pole before landing in a field. 

The male driver managed to get out and was taken to hospital.

Firefighters made the scene safe and the electricity board was called out.
