A driver in Halifax town centre made a lucky escape today after being told by a passing lorry driver that his car was on fire.
“I was at the lights and pedestrians were screaming at me that my car was on fire,” said driver Ahmed Hassan of Halifax.
“I pulled the car off the road and it burst into flames and blew up - imagine if that happened on the motorway - I’m lucky to be here.”
Mr Hassan had bought the 2010 Vauxhall Insignia only three week prior from a private seller.
West Yorkshire Fire Service were called to the incident on Bull Green to put out the blaze.
