A suspected burglar was dragged from a stolen car by police following a high-speed chase in Honley
It is believed the chase began in Newsome following a burglary in which a silver Hyundai 4x4 was stolen.
Witnesses say the silver Hyundai was pursued by police cars along Woodhead Road towards Holmfirth.
The chase ended when the speeding suspect vehicle struck a red Ford people carrier at the junction with Eastgate.
It is thought police dragged the suspect from the vehicle after he locked himself in.
The suspect was laid in the road and checked over by a paramedic before he was led into the ambulance in handcuffs.
A 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary, police have said.
A 77-year-old woman passenger in the Ford was taken to hospital with minor injuries, while the 79-year-old B-Max driver also suffered minor injuries.
The chase is thought to have started at around 10.30am after the stolen Hyundai was spotted by police in an unmarked car.
Witnesses reported hearing a loud bang as the chase came to a sudden end.
One witness said: “He’d gone at full speed on Woodhead Road and was on two wheels.
“He came through the lights at such a speed he hit another vehicle and spun it around.
“The police tried to get him to open the doors and he wouldn’t so they tried to get him out through the window.
“It was quite frightening. It’s quite a busy road.”
Another witness said: “We heard a loud bang and we thought someone had had an accident.
“We went to the window and there were two cars at the traffic lights.
“I think police had forced him stop.
“Police couldn’t open the doors of the car so I think they pulled him out of the window and laid him in the road.”
A spokesperson for West Yorkshire Police said: “Officers were alerted to a stolen vehicle travelling along Woodhead Road, which failed to stop when requested to do so.
“The vehicle, a silver Hyundai estate (sic) then collided with a red Ford B-Max at the junction of Woodhead Road, Station Road and Eastgate around 10.30am.
“The driver of the Hyundai, a 30-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and was taken to hospital for treatment for injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.
“A 77-year-old woman, who was the passenger in the Ford B-Max was also treated by paramedics for minor injuries and taken to hospital. The driver of the B-Max, a 79-year-old, suffered minor injuries.
