FIVE teenagers cheated death in a crash drama.
One of the youngsters - a 16-year-old girl - was flung out of the back of the hatchback car when it careered out of control at Clifton Common at around 8.15pm last night.
The driver was left pinned and trapped in the wreckage and three others who were in the car were also hurt.
But, amazingly, none have suffered life-threatening injuries.
A police spokeswoman said: "The injuries are not thought to be too serious."
The black Citroen Saxo left a trail of debris 300 yards along High Moor Lane, close to the Willow Valley Golf Course, after smashing into a wall.
Firefighters from Brighouse, Elland and Cleckheaton were the first on the scene and gave emergency first aid.
Sub officer Wayne Fawcett, of Brighouse fire station, said: "They were very lucky. The car hit a wall and the tailgate must have shot open.
"As the car then spun around, the girl was thrown out through the open tailgate and landed behind a hedge."
The driver was trapped by his legs and had suffered a head injury.
He had to be cut free from the wreckage.
Another passenger had suffered a neck injury.
Two others were classed as walking wounded.
The firefighters gave all the teenagers first aid until paramedics arrived.
The injured were all taken to Dewsbury District Hospital for treatment.
