A FAMILY pulled a teenager from a burning car after a horror smash near Huddersfield.
David Cooper, his wife Jacqui, and sons, Bradley, 18, and Louie, 15, rushed to the aid of a trapped driver near their Berry Brow home at 1.30am on Saturday.
The family were woken by the sound of a massive impact as the driver of a Renault Espace people carrier smashed into the central reservation at the notorious Alpine Bend on Woodhead Road near Magdale.
The car flipped onto its roof having launched itself off the 12-inch high kerb on the northbound side of the road near the Texaco garage.
No other vehicles were involved in the early hours smash.
David, who recently took over the Latte Hut on King Street, said his sons had heard the collision and woke him and his wife.
He said: “Bradley got us up and we all ended up down on the road and saw a car upside down and on fire.
“Bradley stopped the traffic while Louie phoned the emergency services.
“I started looking to see if there was anybody in the car and me and Louie found someone hanging out of it, semi-conscious.
“He was trapped under the driver’s door about two-thirds out of the car.
“The car was filling with smoke as the front of it was on fire so we took the opinion it was best to get him away.
