A van crashed in to a house in Illingworth last night (Monday).
The incident happened at an address on Turner Avenue North at around 11pm when a white Volkswagen Panel Vans crashed in to a telegraph pole “hurling it some 30 feet” and in to a house.
No one was injured as a result of the crash.
The driver was later found to have no insurance for which a police spokesperson said he will be prosecuted.
A police spokesperson said: “This man had local knowledge of the road and yet failed to negotiate the bend. It is fortunate that no casualties resulted from this.”
A fire crew from Illingworth attended the scene to make the vehicle safe.
