A DRIVER lost control in rush- hour traffic and perched his car on two wheels against the front steps of a house.
The car was travelling towards Huddersfield along Halifax Road at Birchencliffe just before 9am yesterday when it mounted the kerb and crashed into steps outside the terrace house across the road from the Grey Horse pub.
The driver was unhurt and no other car was involved.
Pc John Thompson, of Huddersfield Traffic Police, said: "I think it was just a momentary lapse of concentration.
"It was lucky, though, because if someone had been on the pavement this could have been a lot worse."
A young mother and child were in the house when the accident happened. They were also unhurt.
