A CRASH saw one car speed into a house last night, leaving a car hanging over a sleeping resident.

At around midnight, fire, police and ambulance crews were called to a house in Ainsworth, where two cars had crashed and a driver absconded.

One of the cars involved in the crash in Church Street was believed to have been going at around 60 miles per hour.

One car careered into a house in the aftermath of the crash, smashing through a wall and hanging over the basement — where the occupier was sleeping.

Bolton North fire crews attended the scene to assist ambulance and police teams.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said: "There was one car that was coming from Bury and another car that was coming through Ainsworth, we think doing about 60 miles per hour.

"One car collided into a house. The occupier was sleeping in the basement and the car was hanging over the pit where they were sleeping."

One driver absconded, leaving behind a driver and passenger from the other car.

The spokesman added: "The person in on car absconded.

"The two people in the other car were seen by the ambulance as a precautionary measure.

No one was injured, but fire crews said those involved were left shaken.
